Discover the old Alexandria, My home town has a Majestic and ancient history that It was founded by Alexander the Great 331 BC. The city has magnificent public precincts and royal palaces which cover a fourth or even a third of the entire area. Cosmopolitan Alexandria is a term that is usually applied for a period in the history of the Egyptian city of Alexandria lasting from [1860 -1961]. Large numbers of Greeks, Italians, French, English,Maltese, Armenians, Lebanese,Turks,Bulgarians,Jews ,etc,lived in harmony within each other and with the local people .Sadly enough,the cosmopolitan nature of the city was abruptly put to an end when Nasser issued the socialist laws of 1961,followed by the planned Arabinization of the names of streets and districts Most European communities left Alexandria except for a still existing very small Greek community. However,European influence on the city can be still seen in Alexandria after 50 years from the end of the cosmopolitan era of the city. I wasn't a witness to this era but my parents and my grandparents were and they granted me their experience and now the time has came to share this experience, hope that I can do something to preserve these memories for history let me take you in a tour in the old streets of Alexandria and we could have a traditional Alexandrian meal and Egyptian drink together while discussing any interesting matters.
