Accra (/@'kra; Twi: Nkran, Dagbani; Dagbani; Ga: Ga, or Gaga)is the capital and biggest city of Ghana. It is located on the Gulf of Guinea coast, which is part of Atlantic Ocean. Accra has a total area of 225.67km2 (87.13 sq miles) and a population of approximately 4.2 million [update].  It is divided into 12 local government areas, 11 municipal districts, and Accra Metropolitan District. This is the only city within the capital that has been granted city status.  Acra is the Accra metropolitan area, which is the capital of Ghana. The Accra Metropolitan Assembly's jurisdiction, however, distinguishes the Accra district from the rest of Accra as the \"City of Accra\".  However, in common usage, the terms \"Accra” and \"City of Accra” are interchangeable.
Accra was formed from the amalgamation of different settlements around British Fort James (Ussher Fort) and Dutch Fort Crevecoeur, also known as Jamestown, Usshertown and Christiansborg. It has since become a modern metropolis. This history is reflected in Accra's architecture, which ranges from colonial-era architecture of the 19th century to modern apartment blocks and skyscrapers.
