The city is the economical, political and cultural center of the country, it is home to Makerere University, the Uganda Museum, and the Ugandan National Theatre. Other points of interest are Kabaka's Palace (history of Buganda), Nakasero Market, and St. Balikuddembe Market (formerly known as Owino Market), the Basilica of the Uganda Martyrs (a minor basilica), Wonder World Amusement Park, and Casino Simba (gambling).
