Alexandria

Alexandria is Egypt`s second largest city and was named after Alexander the Great who founded the city in 332 BC. Alexandria became a great centre of scholarship and sciences. The Temple of Serapi, the famous library and the lighthouse were the icons of the city. Alexandria is an important and sprawling port city that has many popular beaches. Discoveries dating back to the time of Cleopatra were recovered from the eastern-port basin and made world-wide headlines.
