Alexandria is Egypt a tourist city

Alexandria

Alexandria, located in the far west of the Nile Delta, is also called the "Pearl of the Mediterranean". It is the one with around 4.3 million inhabitants second largest city in Egypt. It was founded in 332 BC. Chr. From Alexander the great and soon developed into the center of the Hellenistic world. Alexandria was later under Roman rule - like all of Egypt. It was followed around 642 by the Arabs, the Ottoman Empire, the British ... The Great Library of Alexandria - once the center of the ancient world - is still famous today. Today it's a nice mix of history and modernity that makes Alexandria worth seeing. And the magnificent coast of the Mediterranean invites you to relax. And the old town of Alexandria is - as it was in primeval times - full of oriental life. The center of the city is the Freedom Square Midan Tahrir. From here it goes straight to the wonderful Corniche and the main harbor. Alexandria is - after Cairo - the most important city in Egypt.

Bibliotheca Alexandrina

The Bibliotheca Alexandrina was built in 2002 on the site where the ancient, famous Alexandria Library is said to have once stood. The reading room inside offers space for 2,000 readers and is the largest of its kind in the world. The aim of the library is to have a stock of 8 million books over the years. There are also four museums in the futuristic-looking building - one of which is dedicated to the former President Sadat. In the CULTURAMA you can experience the history of Egypt interactively.

Royal Jewelry Museum

If you want to marvel at the royal jewels of the former royal dynasty, then you should visit the Royal Jewelry Museum - the Royal Jewelery Museum in Alaxndria. In addition, a real treasure trove of jewels, jewelery and glittering gems awaits you. The museum is located in the former palace building of Princess Fatma Al-Zahra, the first wife of King Faruq (1920-1965, in the district of Zizinia. The building itself is worth seeing, which was built in the style of eclecticism.
