Most of Tanzania's coastal towns were founded on ports from which slaves and valuable goods were transported across the Indian Oceans. Many inland towns on mainland Tanzania were important rest stops for trade caravans and in the northern highlands small towns founded by Germans were centres for colonial administration and agriculture. In modern day Tanzania most cities and towns still specialise in trade and agriculture and are the centres for economical and political activity in the regions. There are many historical and cultural sites of interest to visitors, especially in the coastal cities and towns.
