KINGDOM OF

BAHRAIN

CAPITAL | MANAMA

The island state is situated east of Saudi Arabia and north of Qatar.

Bahrain comprises a small archipelago of 51 natural Islands and 33 artificial islands, centered around Bahrain Island which make up around 83 percent of the country's landmass. Bahrain is connected with the Arabian Peninsula by a series of bridges and causeways.

Bahrain is home to a thriving art scene. It was the first in the Gulf to welcome art with painting classes in 1919; the first to open a movie theatre in 1937. An arts society was founded in 1983. Today  galleries are participating in fairs internationally and state-sponsorship is providing the platform for local art art and culture to flourish.
