Beirut

 

Beirut is simply a melting place combining culture, history, commerce and modern life.

The capital and largest city of Lebanon and the seat of government. Historically, Beirut has been rebuilt several times after being destroyed by two earthquakes, a fire, a tidal wave, fell prey to conquerors, and  in recent times, by a 17 years civil war, always recovering its former beauty and splendour.
