Alexandria in Photos: Then and Now

postcard

The largest city on the Mediterranean coast and the second largest in Egypt, Alexandria has always been a bastion of culture and trade since its founding in 331 BC by Alexander the Great. Since then and throughout periods of booms and busts, our beloved city by the sea has maintained its enduring sense of style and grace.
