Riyadh: Heritage and modernity in Saudi Arabia's capital Visitors to the capital city of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are treated to stunning modern architecture and a wealth of shopping options for every budget. The skyline is dominated by two landmark buildings: Al Faisaliyah Centre, at the southern end of the Olaya business and retail district, and Kingdom Centre, whose 99th floor Skybridge offers incredible vistas over the city and the eternal deserts beyond. Riyadh's Islamic heritage shines through in its over 2000 mosques, in particular at Imam Turki Bin Abdullah Grand Mosque, King Khalid Grand Mosque and Al Rajhi Grand Mosque, visited by thousands of worshippers every day. The National Museum at the King Abdul Aziz Historical Centre is the ideal place to appreciate Arab history, art and culture, and its surrounding parks and plazas are popular for family outings and picnics. Browse traditional wares in the old city of Riyadh in the Qasr Al Hokum district, where vendors in the souks sell everything from spices to jewellery. Olaya Street offers Riyadh's premium retail options and two exclusive shopping centres, Mamlaka Mall (in the Kingdom Tower complex) and Faisaliah Mall.
