Cultura Since achieving independence in 1975 from the Portuguese, Angola has been racked by infighting among its various political groups, which include the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), the National Front for the Liberation of Angola (FNLA) and the National Union for Total Independence of Angola (UNITA). A ceasefire between the government and the rebel factions has been in effect since 2002, when fighting largely stopped. Citizens have had to endure restriction of their movements, censorship, forced conscription into the armed forces, and rampant poverty and disease.
Sights Though Luanda is not the safest place to visit, it has a few sights worth seeing. It is advisable to seek sound local advice on security measures before visiting these sights and the country itself.
The Cidade Alta is situated in the oldest part of the capital that was occupied by the Portuguese and has some magnificently designed buildings. The building offers an excellent view of the waterfront.
The National Museum of Anthropology displays Angolan Crafts and historical information on Angola and Luanda.
The Museum of Escravatura is 20kms from the center of Luanda and is dedicated to the thousands of Angolan slaves who were taken to the Americas.
Illha de Luanda has some spectacular beaches lined with coconut palms but the water is cold and marine litter is very evident. Swimming is definitely out because the undertow is dangerous. Visit the Futungo Market, south of Luanda, for its Sunday sale of handicrafts. While there, you also have the opportunity to stake out at the beaches on Ilha do Mussolo. Surprisingly, these beaches are unlittered and geared for tourists with their restaurants and bars.

Aus Wikipedia über Luanda

Luanda (ursprünglich São Paulo da Assunção de Loanda, Schreibweise bis ins 19. Jahrhundert auch Loanda) s und hat etwa fünf Millionen Einwohner, wie die Wählerregistrierung zu den Parlamentswahlen von 2008 errechnen ließ. Diese Zahl bezieht sich auf das Gebiet, das verwaltungstechnisch zu Luanda gehört. Tatsächlich ist die Stadt jedoch erheblich über diese Grenzen hinaus gewachsen und hat dabei bestehende Siedlungskerne absorbiert; "Groß Luanda" könnte an die zehn Millionen Einwohner haben.

Inzwischen gehört Luanda zu den größten Städten Afrikas und ist auch die drittgrößte portugiesischsprachige Stadt hinter São Paulo und Rio de Janeiro und vor Lissabon und Maputo.
