The satellite view and the map show Sana'a, the largest city and the national capital of Yemen
, located in the western part of the country about 160 km east of the Red Sea in the Yemeni highlands at Mount Nugum.
Sana'a is Yemen's capital, but the seat of the internationally recognized government under President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi moved to Aden
in the aftermath of the 2014–15 Yemeni coup d'état. The Old City of Sana'a
is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The city lies at an altitude of 2,200 m above sea level. Sana'a has a population of about 1.7 million inhabitants. The official language
is Arabic. The primary seaport of Yemen is Aden on the Gulf of Aden. Al Hudaydah is the country's principal port on the Red Sea.
Yemen has never been a safe tourist destination, only a few Western citizens travel to Yemen. The majority who visit rarely make an effort to go beyond the capital Sanaa and its immediate surroundings, while perhaps visiting Aden
or the city of Taiz, but with the Houthi insurgency it got worse.
The sectarian military rebellion escalated into a full-scale civil war. In January 2015 the Houthis seized, and currently control Sana'a. A Houthi official declared the dissolution of Yemeni parliament in Sana'a on 6 February 2015.
On 12 June 2015, Saudi-led airstrikes targeting Shiite rebels and their allies in Yemen destroyed historic buildings in the center of the city. The
UNESCO World Heritage site was severely damaged.
Since Saudi Arabia
intervened in the country's civil war in March 2015, more than 19,000 raids have been carried out in Yemen, the Arab world's poorest country.
