  • All you can expect and more! Amazing structure with natural light, the perfect place for a quiet research or reading. At the same time is a museum. Important events happen in this location. And it has a planetarium for the joy of children and adults. A place for all family

  • The Library of Alexandria was reborn in October 2002 to reclaim the mantle of its ancient namesake. It is not just an extraordinarily beautiful building; it is also a vast complex where the arts, history, philosophy, and science come together. Moreover, the myriad activities it offers have made it a place for open discussion, dialogue, and understanding.
