African republic of Zambia is located in the southern part of the continent. Being British colony, Zambia was known as Northern Rhodesia. The state became independent from the UK in 1960’s and then changed its name. Zambia’s population consists of multifarious ethnic groups, so they are united together by English language, the only one having the official status. The legal tender Zambian coins and notes are called kwachas. Old circulated coins of Zambia are rare in common use by now because of their nominal value, which is lower than the value of alloy they’re made of. Those vintage pieces nowadays are sold to tourists or coin collectors.
Zambia is known as the only state, which entered the Olympic Games as one country and left as another one, due to declaration of independency claimed then. The diversity of Zambian tribes determines significant variations in the lifestyles and traditions of its population. The difference is bigger in rural regions of the country, while urbanized population mixed their cultures together with strong European influence added. Local arts and music are still different in various parts of the state, having the great tourism potential. Natural features, such as Victoria Falls and wildlife national parks, attract tourists no less. The main sector of Zambian economy is copper mining, discovered in colonial times. Currently the state tries to use the other sources of revenue, because of general decline of its copper mining industry.
