About Alexandria, Egypt
Egypt spans the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, bordered by the Gaza Strip and Israel to the northeast, the Gulf of Aqaba and the Red Sea to the east, Sudan to the south, and Libya to the west. Islam is the official religion of Egypt and Arabic is its official language. The 94 million Egyptians speak a continuum of dialects of Arabic, among which Cairene is the most prominent, and is the most widely spoken and one of the most widely studied varieties of Arabic. While it is essentially a spoken language, it is encountered in written form in novels, plays and poems (vernacular literature), as well as in comics, advertising, some newspapers and transcriptions of popular songs. In most other written media and in television news reporting, Literary Arabic is used. Literary Arabic is a standardized language based on the language of the Quran, that is, Classical Arabic.
Alexandria is a Mediterranean port city in Egypt believed to have been founded by Alexander the Great in April 332 BC. It was the intellectual and cultural centre of the ancient world for some time. The city and its museum attracted many of the greatest scholars, including Greeks, Jews and Syrians.
During the Hellenistic period, it was home to a lighthouse ranking among the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World as well as the Royal Library of Alexandria, once the largest library in the world. From the late 18th century, Alexandria became a major centre of the international shipping industry and one of the most important trading centres in the world.
The city’s climate is influenced by the Mediterranean Sea, moderating its temperatures, causing variable rainy winters and moderately hot summers that, at times, can be very humid. It is a main summer resort and tourist attraction, due to its beaches, ancient history, art and Museums.
