1893 CAMEROON - Contemporary architecture in Yaoundé
Yaoundé is the capital of Cameroon, and the second largest city in the country after the port city Douala. The city centre houses government offices, some hotels, and the central market. The presidential palace and compound is in the Etoudi district. May 20 Boulevard is one of the major arteries of Yaoundé. The government chose 20 May as Cameroon's National Day to commemorate President Ahmadou Ahidjo's abolishment of the federal system of government in favor of a unitary country in 1972.
