Tourism has returned to centre stage in Egypt after the country’s deadly coronavirus experience, which restricted tourists from visiting tourism sites in the country since the outbreak of COVID-19.
Reporting say from the Mediterranean City of Alexandria in northern Egypt on Saturday, saw hundreds of people finding their ways to the iconic Bibliotheca Alexandrina in the city.
The facility houses the ancient library and various civilizations of Egypt, dating back to 331 BC, when the Roman General, Alexander the Great, founded the city.
It also houses the country’s national museum, including personal belongings of a former President of the country, Muhammad Anwar Sadat, who was assassinated on October 6, 1981 in Cairo.
The Alexandria Library was generating up to 20 million Dollars yearly from tourists visiting the place from various countries.
