Lagos is the most populous in Nigeria and the most populous on the African continent. It is one of the fastest growing cities in the world and one of the most populous urban agglomerations. Lagos, the capital of Nigeria since its amalgamation in 1914, went on to become the capital of Lagos State after its creation. This unofficial figures put the population of “Greater Metropolitan Lagos”, which includes Lagos and its surrounding metro area, extending as far as into Ogun State, at approximately 21 million. To the north, Lagos Island is home to the National Museum Lagos, displaying cultural artifacts and craftworks. Nearby is Freedom Park, once a colonial-era prison and now a major venue for concerts and public events. Lagos wheelchair access is poor by international first world standards.
San Salvador is the capital and the most populous city of El Salvador and its the country’s political, cultural, educational and financial center. The Metropolitan Area of San Salvador comprises the capital itself and has a population of 1,767,102. San Salvador is located in the Salvadoran highlands, surrounded by volcanoes and prone to earthquakes. The city is also home to the Catholic Archdiocese, as well as many Protestant branches of Christianity, including Evangelicals, Latter-day Saints, Baptists, and Pentecostals. San Salvador has the second largest Jewish community in Central America and a small Muslim community. The city has suffered from many severe earthquakes, the most disastrous of which occurred in 1854. San Salvador wheelchair access leaves much to be desired.
