Which historic place in your country do you feel proudest of?
In  Libya, I like the ancient city of Cyrene most.
I've chosen it from all other historic sites because of very important reasons.
# Cyrene is an ancient Greek and Roman city, which is located on the Jebel Akhdar mountain in the east of Libya.
# It is considered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
# According to the archaeologists, Cyrene is one of  the best preserved Greek ancient cites in the world.
# It is also considered as the most important Greek city outside Greece on the Mediterranean basin.
# It was also the place where Aristippus founded the Cyrenaics, a famous school of philosophy.
# It is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the country.
 Although there are plenty of things to tell about Cyrene " The Athens of Africa", I listed enough points of  why I like Cyrene  most.
Form the information above, I can say that no visit to Libya is complete  without seeing Cyrene. So if you ever plan to visit Libya, then let Cyrene be on the top of your  Must to Visit list.
I'm looking forward to hear about your country.
Thank you.

You make me really want to visit Libya, Suade!


I come from a tiny, very southern country: New Zealand. Although there's much to see, my favourite place is the Franz Josef Glacier, in the south of the country.


You can see Franz Josef Glacier, and I promise it will change the way you look at the world. Our last ice age lasted from 110,000 years ago to 12,000 years ago, and on the Franz Joseph Glacier you can see what the world looked like back then. I'll never forget walking on there for the first time. Everything is white and blue, ice and nothing else, as far as you can see. No life, just pure cold ice!

It truly feels like you're on another planet. And then you walk away and get to spend time with the friendly New Zealand people and you instantly feel warmer.

Hi. I was born in Sicily so it is easy for me to be proud of my land which is perhaps one of the richest ever. I visited Greek temples and Baroque cathedrals; I was born between the sea and a volcano, and my city is worldwide famous for ceramics. But as I moved away, I lost all of this, but in museums. So it took me a lot of time to find something else to enjoy; and I began to search for my roots in the roots of my new home. You know, sometime foreigners love your country more than you do.

Good question! I can easily think of 10 or more places that impress me or that I love in America. Yet, yet my proudest historic site? It got me thinking. I would say historic sites along the Oregon Trail. Many years ago, groups of rugged individualists hiked across the United States with horse and carriage. Extreme weather, terrain and other hazards took the lives of most of them. Yet, they persevered - motivated by the challenge, a hunger for new discoveries and a desire to give their children a better life. In part, it symbolizes what some refer to as "The American Spirit".

Although they are not necessarily the places I would recommend for a visit, the two historic places in the United States that I feel proudest of are:

a) The Rotunda of the National Archives in Washington, DC, where you can see the actual original copies of the United States Constitution and the United States Declaration of Independence;

b) Independence Hall, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where the Declaration of Independence was drafted and the Constitution was signed.

 It seems very exciting. Visiting this place is like travelling back in time. Such an experience must be truly amazing. "Don't leave New Zealand before you've been to Franz Josef Glacier". Thank you for sharing these information about Franz Josef Glacier, Alan.
