Before the arrival of Europeans, this land belonged to Arawak Indians. At the end of the XV th century the Spaniards discovered the coast of Guyana, but they were not attracted by these swamp wetlands with an unhealthy climate. However, already in the XVIII-XIX centuries the territory becomes a point of interest of France, England and the Netherlands in the same time. In 1831, after a long struggle, it came to the United Kingdom, and gained the name of British Guiana. Today, Guyana is an independent parliamentary republic. A head of the state is a president, a leader of the party, which gained the most votes in Parliament elections .
Georgetown, the capital of Guyana, once was a capital of pirates and slave traders. Now, it is a cozy city, with well-preserved districts of colonial architecture buildings. Botanical and zoological gardens are worth a visit.
Modern Guyana has great potential in tourism. Ecotourism is the mainstream. The country is rich in relict forests, pristine waters. Vast wetlands are inhabited by numerous animals, many of which are endemic. Kaieteur Falls is a popular destination for hiking and horseback excursions.
