Dar es Salaam is the country's largest city. During the late 19th century Germany formed German East Africa which became British after World War I. 

The mainland was Tanganyika, separate from the Zanzibar Archipelago.  After both became independent, in April 1964 they became the United Republic of Tanzania.
