Its capital city of Antananarivo has a population of around 1.3 million, rising to almost three million in the surrounding metropolitan area. The city is located in the center of the island, at 1,280m above sea level. Antananarivo is the political, commercial, educational and cultural center of Madagascar, and is hugely diverse, with many nationalities represented, including Chinese, European and Indian, in addition to the eighteen ethnic groups native to the island, known as the Malagasy.
