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.
