06.01.2018 : Alexandria

Alexandria/Egypt is named after Alexander the Great who conquered in 331 BC the old Egyptian settlement Rhakotis - which can be traced back to about 2700 -2200 BC - and started to transform it into an important sea-hub for the Hellenistic - , the Roman as well as the Byzantine World. Its lighthouse Pharos (build between 280 - 247 BC) was one of the Seven Wunders of the world at that time and it was also the home of a historic library. Alexander the Great was burried in a golden coffin after his death in this city.

In its early days Alexandria was also an important harbour linking China - India via the Mediterana with the Italian harbours like Genua or Venice. But its traffic decreased after the Osman Empire blocked the transport-routes to Alexandria and alternative sea-routes were discovered around Africa.
