Alexandria is one legendary city. It was, after all, founded and named after Alexander the Great and therefore has some amount of his greatness thrust upon itself. Once the capital of Egypt, the city witnessed massive destruction but survived owing to its resilience. Today, it is a cultural goldmine with its museums, monuments, libraries and old-world cafes. Fondly known as the alternative capital of the country, Alexandria will certainly make you nostalgic.
