Adama [1]. also known as Nazareth or Nazret. was the capital city of the Oromia region of Ethiopia from 2003 to 2006, at which time the capital was moved back to Finfine (Addis Ababa). It is a popular weekend destination for residents of Addis Ababa and hosts many governmental and non-governmental conferences.

Adama lies approximately 100 km southeast of Addis Ababa, along the main highway that leads to Djibouti via Dire Dawa. Buses to Adama depart from the Nazareth bus centralstation in Addis Ababa, and they do not follow a strict timetable. Generally the driver waits for the entire bus to fill with passengers, though usually this means that buses leave at least once an hour. The journey takes about two hours. Service may be disrupted during fuel shortages or holidays. Minibuses serve the same route at night after the bus stations have closed.

The dialing plan in Ethiopia changed on September 17, 2005. City codes changed from two digits to three digits (or, from outside the country, one digit to two digits) and phone numbers changed from six digits to seven digits. Most telephone numbers in Adama use the city code 022 (or simply 22 from outside Ethiopia), though some numbers use 011 (which is the same city code as Addis Ababa).

Adama is about 25 km north of the spa town Sodere. Minibuses will take passengers to the entrance of Sodere for a few birr. While there is a large hotel at Sodere, the resort is perhaps more well-suited for day trips, as accommodations are better in Adama.
