What to do in Nauru: a country that has no capital

Have you ever thought about visiting a country that doesn't have an official capital? It seems strange, doesn't it? But it exists, and today, we're going to take you to this fascinating island called Nauru!

Nauru is a small island country located in the Central Pacific. With an area of just 21 square kilometers, it is the third smallest country in the world by area, after the Vatican and Monaco.

On our trip, we will explore incredible places that you cannot miss. The Phosphate Mining Ruins, which are a testament to the country's industrial history, Anibare Bay, which offers a stunning beach and rich marine life, and the Central Plateau, an incredible coral peak terrain, are unmissable. And we can't forget Linkbelt Oval, a stadium with an electrifying atmosphere, and Buada Lagoon, a verdant oasis in the lunar landscape.


And yes, Nauru is a unique place where there is no official capital. Now, let's talk about the language. Nauruan is the official language, but English is widely spoken. And the currency is the Australian dollar. For Brazilians wishing to visit Nauru, a visa is required.

Economically, Nauru was once one of the richest countries in the world per capita, thanks to phosphate mining. Today, the situation is very different, with the economy depending heavily on international aid.


But how much does it cost to travel to this country? Well, it's not the cheapest destination. Airfares can be expensive, due to the island's remote location, and accommodation is limited and a bit more expensive than in other Pacific countries.


And now, something interesting that you may not know about. Nauru is the only country in the world without a city officially designated as its capital. That's right! An entire country without a capital city. Surprising, right?
