Republic of Guinea

Guinea is a country in West Africa, bordered on the west by the Atlantic Ocean. Guinea was formerly known as French Guinea and is sometimes called Guinea-Conakry to separate it from its neighbor, Guinea-Bissau. Conakry is the largest city, seat of government, and capital.

It’s known for the Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve, in the southeast. The reserve protects a forested mountain range rich in native plants and animals, including chimpanzees and the viviparous toad. On the coast, the capital city, Conakry, is home to the modern Grand Mosque and the National Museum, with its regional artifacts.
