#Egypt #travel Alexandria, Egypt – Library of Alexandria (Bibliotheca Alexandrina) HD (2013)





The Bibliotheca Alexandrina is a major library and cultural center located on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea in the Egyptian city of Alexandria. It is both a commemoration of the Library of Alexandria that was lost in antiquity, and an attempt to rekindle something of the brilliance that this earlier center of study and erudition represented.

  1. This is my favorite place in Alex…more museum than library.  Out of all the exhibited early machines and paintings of the region…the only thing I could recognize was the first printing press. Born into a family of media people, that's not surprising 🙂 They have a starbucks type coffee place..but Egyptian coffee sucks (like their weed sucks).
