Seychelles – A Piece of Heaven



+ 2


Seychelles lies northeast of Madagascar, an archipelago of 115 islands islands in the Indian Ocean at the eastern edge of the Somali Sea with roughly 98,000 citizens. Its capital and largest city, Victoria, is 1,500 kilometres (800 nautical miles) east of mainland Africa.

Seychelles is a melting pot of many cultures which have commingled and coexisted since the first settlement of the islands in 1770. The three main inhabited islands are Mahé, Praslin and La Digue and the official languages are English, French and Seychellois Creole.


The Seychellois are a colourful and harmonious blend of different nationalities from across the globe, all of whom have brought something of their own customs and cultures to create a well-integrated, harmonious and vibrant modern island state with a distinct culture enriched from many continents. Where other nations live in fear of their neighbours, Seychelles has successfully woven disparate influences into a live-and let-live philosophy in which harmony has become a way of life.

In Victoria ( the world’s tiniest capital) a Roman Catholic cathedral sits beside an Anglican cathedral, a Seventh Day Adventist Church, a mosque, a Hindu Temple, and halls of worship for several other denominations.
