Cheap Flights to Alexandria
Alexandria or also known as Al-Iskandariyyah is one of the many big cities in Egypt. It is located in the Mediterranean region and is quite famous as the Hellenic science and scholarship centre. Alexandria city is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, Nile River Delta and Cairo city and covers more than 300 square kilometre radius. Before Egypt was invaded by the Romans, Alexandria was the capital city of Egypt. However, it was later merged with Cairo making Cairo one of the biggest cities in Egypt today. The city was the centre of early Christianity, and hence you can find Coptic Orthodox Churches there. Due to the constant invasions from the Romans followed by the Arabs, the city had lost most of its significance. After the 18th century, Alexandria became the centre of many international activities such as the shipping industry and other such major trading centres in the whole world. The connection between both the largest seas such as the Red sea and the Mediterranean Sea, this city became a major hub of many international trades.
According to the population census that was conducted in 2021, Alexandria city has over 5,381,000 residents in it.
The radiocarbon dating of many architectures and seashell fragments has shed light on the fact that many human kingdoms have flourished in this city from 27th to 21st centuries BC. There is not much evidence that explains this city since then, till Alexander discovered the place. Alexandria city has made quite a name even in the historical pages because of some names such as Alexander Cleopatra. It was Alexander the Great, the King of Macedon who actually founded the city in 331 BC. The city was then declared the capital city of Egypt in the 4th century and stayed the capital city till Egypt was invaded by the Arabs in the 7th century. The city was first known by the name Rhacotis and became Alexandria after it was founded by King Alexander. The first civilization to flourish in the city is Hellenistic Civilization. Later the other civilizations such as Byzantine and Roman also flourished here for more than 10 centuries.
