Ras Al Khaimah

The emirates that constitute the U.A.E. are: Abu Dhabi (Capital), Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm Al Quwain.

Ras Al Khaimah is one of the seven Emirates that form the United Arab Emirates. Ras Al Khaimah is nestled between the Hajjar Mountains on the east and the Arabian Gulf on the west and shares mountainous borders with the Sultanate of Oman.

Upon the passing of his father Sheikh Saqr Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, H.H. Sheikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi was appointed Ruler in October 2010. His son Sheikh Mohammed Bin Saud Al Qasimi has been appointed Crown Prince.

The city of Ras Al Khaimah, the capital of the Emirate is divided into two parts by a creek. The western part, known as ‘old Ras Al Khaimah’ comprises government departments, educational institutions, shopping malls and hotels as well as residential areas and new construction projects. The eastern part, known as ‘Al Nakheel’ comprises the site of the Emiri Court, some governmental departments, markets, Ras Al Khaimah Exhibition Center, hospitals and residential areas housing the majority of the city’s population. The two parts of the city are linked by a bridge and a network of modern roads.
