The Republic of Rwanda (pronoun-ced /ruːˈandə/, ruːændə, or rəwɑːndəin English, ɾwanda or ɾɡwandain Kinyarwanda is a unitary republic of central and eastern Africa.
It borders Uganda to the north; Tanzania to the east; Burundi to the south; and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west.
The largest cities in Rwanda are Kigali, Rubavu, and Huye. Unlike many African countries, Rwanda is home to only one significant ethnic and linguistic group, the Banyarwanda. The country is well known for its native styles of dance, particularly the Intore dance, and for its drummers. Kinyarwanda, English and French are the official languages.
The earliest known inhabitants of the territory were the Twa people, who still live in Rwanda as a minority today. A series of further migrations took place, leading to a complex ethnic and social structure.
The Kingdom of Rwanda, initially a loose confederation, grew in importance from the 15th century to become the dominant civilization in the region, occupying an area beyond the present borders.
The territory was assigned to Germany by the 1884 Berlin Conference, as part of Ruanda-Urundi, with the first Western explorers reaching the country in 1894. After World War I, the territory was allocated to Belgium as a League of Nations mandate.
The German and Belgian regimes heavily favoured the country's Tutsis over the majority Hutus which led to tension between the two groups.
In 1994 the president was assassinated, sparking the Rwandan Genocide. The RPF quickly restarted their offensive, and eventually took control of the country.
Since the end of the Genocide, Rwanda has enjoyed political and social stability.
Rwanda has been declared as one of the safest, and cleanest countries in Africa.
By its natural beauty and the many touristic attractions, Rwanda is becoming a wanted destination for tourists all over the world.
