Ghana: Accra – Independence Square

Independence Square aka Black Star Square is the main square in Accra, Ghana’s capital. It is the second largest public square in the world after Tiananmen in Beijing. All the parades and celebrations happen here in front of 30,000 seated spectators (so it’s like a giant stadium). The central monuments are the Black Star Gate and the Independence Arch. Unlike in many other African capitals – photography is allowed here.
