Alexander is situated on the shore of the Mediterranean and has the reputation of a Mediterranean bride. The city has a long history and is named for the work of Alexander the Great. We visited four scenic spots: Pompeii Column, Gaibei Castle, Summer Palace and Library. It feels that the western characteristics of the city are obvious, but the development of the city is also seriously divided. Some streets are as backward as those in China in the 1970s and 1980s.
The whole journey of Egypt, like the beauty of the Red Sea and the humanities of Alexandria, the people here are very friendly. There are beautiful female students in the Alexandria Library. High school students invite to take pictures together. On the way, they can see lovely children. There are many cats and cats on the beach. They are not afraid of people. They will sit beside people without food. This side is characterised by a carriage tour of the city's scenery, and the horses are also beautifully dressed.
Alexander is the largest port city in Egypt and the largest port in North Africa. It has a history of more than 4000 years. It is a prosperous city that has experienced the Pharaoh era of Egypt and the Roman era. When you come to Alexandria, you will find that it is totally different from other parts of Egypt. The cities here are clean, the buildings are modern, and the people's cultural level is generally higher. It is closer to the cities in Europe. It is definitely a microcosm of Egypt's modernization.
Alexandria, located on the Mediterranean coast, was the last battle for Alexander's Empire to March east. It took Egypt without a single arrow and built Alexander's castles and ports here. Then the soldiers returned to Asia and continued their northward March to the hinterland of Persia, where Alexander, 24, was known as the Pharaoh and the son of the sun god Amon.
Alexander, a city by the sea on the north of Egypt, is close to the Mediterranean Sea and has picturesque scenery. There are many scenic spots in Alexander. Pompeii Stone Pillar is very famous and must be visited here. The library is very beautiful. The egg-shaped building at the entrance is very unique. No one knows about Gaibei Castle, but it was built on the Lighthouse of Alexander, the Seven Wonders of the World. Montaza Palace is the most beautiful, with grasslands, forests, seas, castles, even leaders of all countries living here. Alexander, a must-see place for Egyptian tours.
Alexandra Alexander, when you first saw the name, thought of Alexander the Great or Pressure Mountain. When Alexander the Great became king at the age of 20, he unified Greece, swept across Central Asia, flattened Persia, conquered Egypt without bloodshed until the Indus Valley. It's a pity that Alexander the Great died young, otherwise the whole history of human development should be rewritten. Alexander is on the verge of the vast Mediterranean Sea, a city that combines ancient and modern, traditional Islamic culture and Western civilization. The spacious coastal Avenue looks very beautiful under the blue sky and white clouds. Today, there is a light rain. The yellow and black lord "bumblebee" taxi on the coastal Avenue has a bad habit of asking for money/money/RMB from Aswan and Luxor's children. Alexander's children are polite and very good-looking. It may be related to the frequent contacts with Greece and Turkey in this history, so it's all Allah. The blood of Burma or Egypt. The exterior walls of the main building of the Alexandria Library are carved with 50 kinds of the oldest characters and symbols from all over the world. Of course, there are also Chinese characters. Do you see any of them?
On October 6, Egyptian time, the last day of our trip is Alexander, Egypt's largest seaport and the second largest city in the country. In 332 B.C., Alexander I, King of Macedonia, Greece, established the city and named it the capital after him. It became the capital of Ptolemy in Egypt from 305 BC to 30 BC. At that time, it was the center of trade and cultural exchanges between the Mediterranean and Eastern countries, attracting businessmen, scholars and poets from all over the world. There are magnificent public temples, altars and palaces in the city. Palaces account for more than a quarter of the city's area. One part of them is the famous Alexander Botanical Garden in history. It consists of 700,000 volumes of libraries, zoological and botanical gardens and research institutes. In 48 B.C., Caesar, commander in chief of Rome, led his troops to occupy Alexandria, burned down the library and torched the precious books, causing a catastrophe in the history of human culture. But this famous city has preserved only a few ancient glories. After the Arabs entered in the 7th century, Alexandria declined. In the early 19th century, Mohammed Ali set out to rebuild Alexandria. Preferential trade policies, especially cotton, attracted a large number of foreigners. Alexandria developed into the golden age in the 1950s, with vigorous vitality and frequent contacts with other parts of the world. In Lawrence Darrell's "Alexandria Quartet", the atmosphere of Alexandria's greenhouse is vividly described. Now Alexander has no ancient relics, Greece and Rome have become the past. But just half an hour after the car entered Alexandria, I began to like the city, the clean and tidy streets, the open-air tables and chairs in front of the seaside restaurant, and the people sitting at the edge of the chair. In fact, I like the light and quiet attitude of life here. I'm really a lazy person in my bones. At noon, we had a local specialty at a seaside restaurant. The dishes don't have much special features, if a roast fish is also counted. But the location of the restaurant is really good. Looking out from the window, it's the long coastline with a unique view. Most of the beaches on the shore are enclosed. For a dollar, you can spend a whole day on the beach. But most of the people who do this are foreigners, while the local people prefer to sit on the stone railings on the shore. Therefore, the people in the stone railings are also a beautiful scenery. If you have enough time, you can also take a carriage along the coastline along the Coastal Avenue, the beginning and end of this road is the East Palace and the Summer Palace. Because facing the vast ocean, we lean against the light of the waves on Lake Melvut. Unlike other regions, Alexandria is a summer resort along the Mediterranean coast because of its cool and humid winter, fresh Mediterranean sea breeze in summer, mild climate and spring-like seasons. Far away from the busy seaside, we began to see the real life of Alexander, perhaps not as bright as the shore, but the people we saw still greeted our camera with the purest smiling face.
Alexander, in northern Egypt, bordering the Mediterranean Sea and across the European continent, is a coastal city full of European flavor, which also brings us to the other side of Egypt's prosperity and modernity. The car was walking along the seaside. The sea and sky were blue with white clouds and sprays. The colorful tents on the continuous beach were cool and elegant under the sea breeze. Pompeii, libraries, castles and summer palaces are all must-see attractions.
More than a dozen hours on the plane, off the plane, when the arrival of people had already been wilted. The first stop of the Egyptian tour was the Mediterranean coastal landscape of Alexandria. The hotel is not far from Alexandria. The next day, while the other group members were sleeping in the room, they hurried to the riverside to take pictures. There are many people wrapped in headcloths near the river, and they dare not shoot them openly. They can only hide on the edge and flee after shooting. The scenery along the Mediterranean coast is really first-class.
Alexander, the second largest city in Egypt, was founded by Alexander the Great more than 2,000 years ago. Alexander is more open than any other part of Egypt. There are Pompeii pillars, the world's largest library, one of the seven wonders of the world, the Alexander Lighthouse (which collapsed in the earthquake of the 14th century and is now situated on original stones to build the Castle of Gaibei), the Summer Palace and other historic sites, which are worth visiting.
