Countries from a to z antigua & barbuda

  1. 1. Antigua and Barbuda, small islands in the eastern Caribbean, were colonized by the English in 1632. Sugar plantations ruled the economy, and African slaves were brought in as laborers. Independent of Britain since 1981, this three- island nation remains within the Commonwealth. Antigua, one of the first Caribbean islands to promote tourism—in the early 1960s—is the wealthiest. Barbuda seeks to balance resort development with protection of its varied wildlife. Tiny Redonda is uninhabited. Antigua und Barbuda (das frühere Dulcina) ist ein unabhängiger Staat innerhalb des Commonwealth, der aus den Inseln Antigua und Barbuda gebildet wurde. Der Inselstaat, dem auch die unbewohnte abgelegene Insel Rendonda angehört, liegt zwischen dem Nordatlantik und der Karibik, südöstlich von Puerto Rico. Die Hauptstadt Saint Johns befindet sich auf Antigua.
