  Latakia in the evening
by MalenaN

Latakia is a city by the Mediterranean Sea, with Syria’s biggest port.
You can feel it is a coast town. Here you find roads lined with palm trees, many cafes, restaurants and bars and trendy people.
North of the town are some really nice beaches. And close are the historical and interesting places Ugarit and Qala'at Salah ad-Din (Saladin Castle).
