Riyadh, Saudi Arabia’s capital and main financial hub, is on a desert plateau in the country’s center. Business district landmarks include the 302m-high Kingdom Centre, with a sky bridge connecting 2 towers, and 267m-high Al Faisaliah Centre, with a glass-globe summit. In the historical Deira district, Masmak Fort marks the site of the 1902 raid that gave the Al Sauds control of Riyadh. It is known as the cultural capital of Saudi Arabia due to its numerous cultural centres. Among them are the King ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz Historical Centre, the National Museum, and the National Library. The city's fascinating, centuries-old history can be found within its atmospheric souqs, compelling museums, and ancient architecture, but it's also a modern metropolis, with glittering high-rises and a burgeoning contemporary art scene. The winter months are an ideal time to visit Riyadh.

The National Museum of Saudi Arabia which has been established in 1419 as a significant part of the king Abdulaziz historical center in Riyadh. Very impressive and important museum about the entire Saudi history, Saudi royal family, the kingdom formation, and everything regarding the political context. National Museum Park ... They are a popular tourist attraction among locals as an outdoor recreational spot and gets flocked mostly by families during weekends.
King Abdulaziz Historical Center is located in Al-Murabba' Quarter, the central area of Riyadh. The Hall of King Abdulaziz has a showroom of old cars that were used by the king.
The Murabba Palace or Qasr al Murabba (the Square in Arabic), one of Riyadh's historical palaces is named after its Square shape with 400 by 400 meters. It is serving these days as one of the museums in the city. The palace was intended to be a family residence and court for the king.
The Dira Souq traditional Saudi market which is famous for its variety of old copper and brass objects including silver daggers, silver Beduin’s Jewelry and dresses.
The Masmak Palace is also called Masmak Fort, a clay and mudbrick fort in Riyadh's old city. Established in 1865 by 'Abdurrahman ibn Sulaiman under the Emirate of Jabal Shammar, it had an integral role in uniting of Saudi Arabia, with Riyadh's Battle. Since 1995, the fortress turned to a museum showcasing one of Saudi's most important landmarks.
The Edge of the World (its real name is Jebel Fihrayn), one of Saudi’s most popular tourist destinations, got its nickname from the uninterrupted view of the horizon it offers atop its 300-meter-high cliffs, which overlook the surrounding plain. It’s part of the much longer Tuwaiq escarpment, and drops down roughly 305 meters into an ancient ocean bed. From the top of the cliffs, you’ll spot dried rivers weaving across the land and may even see camels moving far below — an ancient caravan route once passed through these grounds. The trip to the Edge of the World from Riyadh takes about 90 minutes by car. Hikers can choose from a range of routes to get to the top, but with rugged terrain, steep climbs and sharp rocks, good walking shoes are a must. Due to the popularity of the Edge of the World, local authorities have paved a road that leads to the gates of the site. Through the gates you’ll find the Sha’ib Kharmah, a large valley that becomes lush and green during the rainy season (November through April) and is an ideal spot for a picnic. The valley runs west for approximately 15 kilometers until it reaches the feet of the massive cliffs that make up the Edge of the World.
