General Information about Nassau for Meeting Planners and Event Professionals
Nassau is the capital and largest city of the Commonwealth of Bahamas, with a population of over 270,000. Founded in 1650 by the British, Nassau is located on the island of New Providence, an important commercial centre and business district. Its strategic location at the intersection of various trade routes made Nassau a popular pirates’ den in the 17th and early 18th century, continuously challenging British rule. However, by 1720 the pirates had been driven out by the British. Nowadays, the city is Bahamas’ administrative and financial hub and a major tourist destination, attracting annually millions of tourists. Some of its most visited areas and landmarks include: the Old Town, a mixture of bright Caribbean constructions and picturesque abandoned buildings; the Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Centre, an important zoological garden famous for its flamingoes and parakeets; and Fort Fincastle, a small fort constructed in 1793 and overlooking the city from the top of a hill. Nassau is also known for its cultural scene and was recognized by UNESCO as part of its Creative Cities Network. Some of its most renowned museums include the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas, showcasing Bahamian artworks dating back to the pre-colonial era, and the Pirate Museum, featuring recreations of a pirate ship and town.
