Liberia is Africa’s oldest republic. It is a country in West Africa, bordering Sierra Leone, Guinea and Côte d’Ivoire. On the Atlantic coast, the capital city of Monrovia is home to the Liberia National Museum, with its exhibits on national culture and history. Around Monrovia are palm-lined beaches like Silver. Along the coast, beach towns include the port of Buchanan, as well as laid-back Robertsport, known for its strong surf.
