Butare
Country(s): Rwanda

This former colonial era administrative capital of Rwanda is a pleasant businesslike town and has lot to boast about. Being the site of the National University, Butare is sometimes called the country’s ‘intellectual’ center and during term time it has probably the largest concentration of students not only at the university but also at other technical and training schools and colleges.

It is something of a religious center too, with its massive cathedral and other churches.
The National Museum is also located here and offers a rich and beautifully presented collection of exhibits on Rwandan history& culture from earliest times to present day.

Spectacular displays of traditional dancers (Intore) take place in Butare and can be arranged on request (for a fee) at the museum.
