Dire Dawa

Dire Dawa is the second larges city with around 200.000 inhabitants on the Dechatu River.
Dire Dawa was founded in 1902 after the Addis Ababa – Djibouti City railroad reached the area. The railroad could not reach the city of Harar at its higher elevation, so Dire Dawa was built nearby.

The city is an industrial centre, home to several markets and an international airport.
