About Alexandria

Extending along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, Alexandria, Egypt's second largest city, was named after its founder, Alexander the Great and is the stuff of legend. As the seat of the Ptolemaic rulers of Egypt, Alexandria quickly became one of the greatest cities of the Hellenistic world, second only to Rome in size and wealth. However, upon the founding of Cairo by Egypt's medieval Islamic rulers, its status as the country's capital ended and fell into a long decline, which by the late Ottoman period had seen it reduced to little more than a small fishing village.
