To get to anywhere in ADDIS you must pass thru this square. Formerly known as Revolution Square in the era of the Derg it is more of an opening traffic area than a grand space. Tall hotels and government facades line the north side and there are concrete viewing stands on the opposite. The tourist office is here but is very sparse. The Addis Ababa Museum also borders the perimeter but not noticeably. There is no need to linger, unless you want to get knocked over!
