There is Big Ben and…

..there is little Ben. Queen Victoria not only gave her name to the capital of the Seychelles, she also donated a smaller copy of the original Big Ben to the city.

The Seychelles has been colonized by both France and Great Britain. The first settlers arrived to the islands around 1770. Victoria is one of the worlds smallest capitals with approximately

30 000 inhabitants. The country became independent 1976.
