Beirut Mar 14, 2011
Lebanon's diverse atmosphere and ancient history make it an important destination which is slowly rebuilding itself after continued turmoil. Lebanon offers plenty: from ancient Roman ruins, to well preserved castles, limestone caves, historic Churches and Mosques, beautiful beaches nestled in the Mediterranean Sea, world renown Lebanese cuisine, nonstop nightlife and discothèques, to mountainous ski resorts.

Located in the heart of the two major world religions, Christianity and Islam, Lebanon has an old and rich religious background with diverse traditions. This is evident in the religious and multicultural blend that can be seen till present times and which gives a unique identity to the Lebanese society. Lebanon has been a refuge for persecuted religious groups from thousands of years, and thus adding a vast amount of religious heritage to the country in both Christian and Islamic sanctuaries and holy places.

a must see in Beirut May 10, 2010
Entering the National Museum of Beirut is a walk in the history of Lebanon from prehistorical time to the Mamlouk period.

Several pieces of statuettes in bronze, grand sarcophages in marble and small Roman coins as well as Byzanthine gold jewelleries are all displayed in a beautiful way and one can easily feel the sense of the wings of history.

The museum is in two floors and much of it was destroyed of the civil war. The staff and friends of the archeological pieces saved much of the collections from being destroyed and grand efforts has been made putting it all together again.
