One of the beautiful places you never knew is Goma, a city in Eastern Congo. This city has a rough past but it is now one of the most safe places to visit in Eastern Congo. Its history relates to the volcano eruption that occured in 2002 killing some villagers and leaving over 2000 people homeless. Visitors to the Virunga can visit this city and see the deserted town that was taken over by volcanicity. It is worthwhile to visit if you want to understand more about this region.
