Alexandria was named after its founder Alexander the Great, who established
the town in 331 B.C. Since its inauguration, Alexandria
always enjoyed a privileged place in history and continued
to develop throughout the ages. Today it is a vital commercial
center lying at the cross roads of the main trading routes
between Asia, Africa and Europe. It is renowned for its
long stretches of white sandy beaches which extend for more
than twenty miles and which have given the town its name
"The Pearl of the Mediterranean." Favored with
an unequaled climate, extremely mild in winter, moderate
and refreshing in summer, Alexandria attracts holiday seekers
and is today the most popular summer resort in Egypt.
