Appreciate Both Sports And Culture With Car Rental Bahrain
Bahrain, which means ‘two seas’ in Arabic, is a small island country near the western shores of the Persian Gulf. Formerly a state, it was declared a kingdom in 2002. It has a fairly liberal and cosmopolitan atmosphere, making it popular with western tourists who visit the Middle East.
Witness the spectacle that is one of Bahrain’s biggest annual events – the Bahrain Grand Prix – with a car rental in Bahrain. Its promotion of national and local motorsports championships, go-karting, drag racing, etc., has earned Bahrain the reputation of being the home of motorsports in the Middle East.
After fighting off stiff competition from Egypt, Lebanon, and the UAE, Bahrain won the prestige of being the first Middle Eastern country to host a Formula One Grand Prix. The first Bahrain Grand prix was flagged off on April 4, 2004 at the Bahrain International Circuit and was awarded the ‘Best Organised Grand Prix’ by the FIA. Although it was cancelled in 2011, the 2013 edition, which was held in April, was met with much success.
If you’re in Bahrain during the month of March, participate in the Spring of Culture Festival with a rental car in Bahrain. Held in the capital, Manama, the festival sees a host of local, national, and international performers who come together from diverse fields like music, dance, theatre, and philosophy.
The festival usually takes place in March, with various events being held at sites such as the state-of-the-art National Theatre, and the Sheikh Ebrahim Centre for Culture and Research. Its purpose is to strengthen cultural and artistic ties and expose Bahraini artists to an international audience and vice-versa. Music lovers can attend concerts by international stars like Yanni, Andrea Boceli, and the Egyptian singer Riham Abdul Hakim, while art lovers and intellectuals can peruse the various exhibitions, seminars, and readings that are held over the course of the festival.
Both the Bahrain Grand Prix and the Spring of Culture Festival give you a glimpse into the history and culture of this island country and are well worth adding to your itinerary.
