Banjul is the capital of the Gambia and has a population of 35,000 inhabitants. It is located on St Mary island (Banjul island) at the mouth of the River Gambia, linked to the main-land by Denton Bridge. There are also ferries linking Banjul to Barra on the north bank of the river Gambia. 

In 1651 the King of Kombo leased the area to the Duke of Courland and Semigallia, as part of the Latvian / Couronian colonization. The British founded Banjul in 1816 as a trading post and base for control of the slave trade. The city was first named Bathurst in honor of Henry Bathurst, secretary of the Colonial Office, but the name of the city was changed in 1973.
