The highlight of our visit to Egypt was a walk into the library of Alexandria. This library became famous world wide because it was the first public governmental library in history.
The first initiative to rebuild the library goes back to the year 1974. The library was opened in 2002 in the location of the ancient library.
The design of the modern library of Alexandria consisted of four underground stores and six upper stores. The special shape of the modern library of Alexandria is considered a special architectural germ. The library of Alexandria is considered the first digital library in the whole world and it contains a place to include 8 million books, six specialized libraries, an Internet archive, a library for teenagers, a microfilm library, the library of the rare books and a conference center. Any time you happen to visit Egypt make it a point be there for an unforgettable experience of lifetime.
