One of the most famous cities in the world, Alexandria was said to be founded by the Greek ruler Alexander the Great in 331 BC. With a population of more than five million residents, Alexandria is the second largest city in Egypt, and is home to much of the nation’s trade. Seated on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, the city became an international shipping and trade giant in the 18th century due in part to its role in the Egyptian cotton trade and its central east-west location on the globe. Today the coastal city is vital to the nation’s natural gas and oil industry, with many pipelines leading into and out of Alexandria. The city is also an international tourist destination mainly because of its long and storied history, but also because of its long stretch of Mediterranean coastline. Alexandria was once home to two of the seven Great Wonders of the ancient world; the Pharos Lighthouse and the Great Library at Alexandria. Though much of the city’s history has been destroyed in war, ruined by natural disaster, or built over, excavation projects are under way to uncover the lost story of the city. Some such ancient sites that have survived to the modern day include Pompey’s Pillar and a large Roman amphitheater. Inaugurated in 2003, the Alexandria National Museum is another popular tourist destination, and is home to many of the city’s ancient artifacts. The Bibliotheca Alexandrina is a modern attempt to recreate the vast store of knowledge that were once housed in the city’s famous ancient library.
Alexandria is a busy port city, playing a key role in both regional shipping and international tourism. This mixture of heavy business and leisurely pleasure, traveling alongside the oldest tramway network in Africa, has led to busy highways and clogged byways in this global city.
