Egypt, travel

The little wonders of Alexandria, Egypt.

Alexandria is Egypt’s second largest city, and  it is also the largest city lying directly on the Mediterranean coast. As its name reveals it, it was founded by Alexander the Great. It’s an important melting pot, Egypt’s centre for trading business. Modern-day Alexandria is a unique fusion of its past and present.

As Yara Ahmed writes: Wandering along its streets, you can glimpse a picture of the old city designed by Dinocrates of Rhodes interwined with a modern beautiful mess pushing to break free from the old. Walk through a market, ride a tram or walk down a completely random street. I am sure that this is the only way you can enjoy a genuine Alexandrian experience.

Here are some photos to get you excited about Alexandria and its little wonders.
