Have you ever visited Alexandria, a beautiful city of Egypt? Tourists and Egyptians know there is a magic in this city which attracts people across the world to visit the place. Locals prefer to spend their vacations in summer on exploring the city while some others tend to visit sea coast when the place has its own marvelous ambience.
In this paper, I would prefer to share some monuments and highlight some other things I noticed when travelling to Egypt. In Alexandria, people should explore the locations they hear on the TV set or read in books.
The Library of Alexandria
The Library of Alexandria is considered one of the biggest and largest institutions in the globe. More than 7 million books are hosted in the Library. The age of this library is no more than 15 years, as it was established and opened in 2002. Thousands of travelers, who visit Egypt each year, must visit this library in order to get information about this country, city, and their culture.
Actually, the library of Alexandria is its new and modern name. Earlier it was named simple and was created in the 3rd century. The library doesn’t host only books, but also, there are many other things to visit such as museums for antiquities, ancient manuscripts, the history of science, and much more. Egypt’s former president Anwar Al-Sadat has been honored through a museum established dedicated to him. Visitors are highly recommended to visit this library and museum.
The Catacombs of Kom EI Shoqfa
The existence of necropolis isn’t something wonderful in Egypt as it’s a Muslim country where all Muslims are buried. But something looks unnatural when it comes to Greco-Roman necropolis in Egypt. It’s the largest and most mysterious cemetery and well-known place around the world.
This place was discovered first by coincidence in early 1900. There are hundreds of tombs placed and featured by various interesting handwritings and designs. The combination of the art from Egypt and Rome is perfect to see for the tourists. The secret of the site known as an ancient burial place should be included in your lists especially if you’re coming here for the first time.
The Mosque of Abu EI Abbas EI Mursi
Don’t miss the opportunity of visiting this mosque, constructed in late 1775. Many things to see here, but the most important factor is the grave of imam Abu EI Abbas EI Mursi.
