Alexandria is a beautiful and bustling coastal city located just two and a half hours North-east from the country's capital Cairo. Considered to be the cultural capital of Egypt, Alexandria has been a fundamental port city, since its establishment in 331 B.C. by the famous Alexander the Great. Ancient and glorious by reputation, boasting its importance for thousands of years, it was once the home to both the "Great Library of Alexandria" and the grand "Lighthouse of Alexandria" (One of the Seven Wonders of the World). Over the course of the millennia, many civilizations inhabited the coastal city, giving its splendor and charm and thanks to strategic nature it became a key commercial hub within the Mediterranean basin. Today, Alexandria offers countless cultural monuments, museums and landmarks such as the Citadel of Qaitbay, Montaza Palace, the Greco-Roman Museum and its splendid ancient Corniche, which allow visitors to witness first-hand the city's ancient past and various civilizations which came to live within its walls. Other "must-do" activities when visiting Alexandria, are the Karmouz and Souq district for shopping and to experience enchanting local Arabian cultures and its various city beaches. Visitors who are passionate about water adventures should also consider taking a day-trip to Abu Qir diving spot, 23km out of Alexandria, to see awesome underwater ancient remains.
