'''Accra''' which is inhabited by about 4 million people, making it the second largest metropolitan conglomeration in Ghana by population, and the eleventh-largest metropolitan area in Africa (List of metropolitan areas in Africa).

Accra stretches along the Ghanaian Atlantic coast (Atlantic Ocean) and extends north into Ghana's interior. Originally built around a port, it served as the capital of the British Gold Coast (Gold Coast (British Colony)) between 1877 and 1957. Once merely a 19th-century suburb of Victoriaborg, Accra has since transitioned into a modern metropolis; the city's architecture reflects this history, ranging from 19th-century architecture buildings (colonial architecture) to modern skyscrapers and apartment blocks.

Accra serves as the Greater Accra region's economic and administrative hub. It is furthermore a centre of a wide range of nightclubs, restaurants and hotels.

The central business district of Accra contains the city's main banks and department stores, and an area known as the Ministries, where Ghana's government administration (Government of Ghana) is concentrated. Economic activities in Accra include the financial and agricultural sectors, Atlantic fishing, and the manufacture of processed food, lumber, plywood, textiles, clothing and chemicals.
