Suva is an absolutely beautiful capital of the South Pacific...

6suva-fiji-islands.jpgThe geography of Suva is arranged roughly like the New Caledonian Noumea: the whole city fits on a small hilly peninsula 3 × 5 km.

31suva-fiji-islands.jpgThis is a central post office.
32suva-fiji-islands.jpgHere's a central park with unique double concrete paths, similar to the railway and the clock tower:

37suva-fiji-islands.jpgOne-storied city of Suva is absolutely magical.
38suva-fiji-islands.jpgThe locals are very smiling.
