Alexandria with its 8 million residents is the second largest city of Egypt.
For Egyptians the city means almost the same as for Russians St.Petersburg

Alexandria is considered to be the northern capital of Egypt. It was founded by
Alexander the Great. The city was built along a narrow strip of the shore of the
Mediterranean Sea.

Its beautiful and recently renovated quay is about 20 kilometers long.
The modern architecture makes Alexandria more similar to European cities,
although the atmosphere there differs a little from that of other cities of

Alexandria attracts tourists with its numerous sights that make this city a very
popular tourist center. I would recommend visiting Alexandria by all means,
especially if you have already visited in Cairo.
Alexandria is located about 200 kilometers away from the Egyptian capital.

    :-) I like your comparison of dinner without wine for the photo & video ban. How true!! And I smiled about the remains of St. Mark body, Venice is still claiming to have him completely. Alexandria looks nice and the music you added is fun :-))
