Transcript of Algeria-History

The People's Democratic Republic of Algeria has been living freely from the rule of France since 1962 when we won our war for independence. We're rich in culture and history and have plenty to do for everyone. Algeria sits along the Mediterranean sea, which provides mild climate and weather. The summer can be a little on the warmer side, but the winter is just right. The official language of Algeria is Arabic, but that doesn't mean you have to speak it. About half of the Algerian population speaks and understands French. No matter what, we can find a way to speak with you. Just how do you get here? If you're in Europe, getting to Algeria is easy. All you have to do is hop on a ferry and you'll be here in no time. If you don't live in Europe, it's still no problem, just fly in. We have two major airports, the Houari Boumediene Airport in Algiers, and the Es Senia Airport in Oran. Just what do you do here? Don't worry we have something for everybody. Check out these great places. Algiers Algiers is the Capital City of Algeria. It sits along the Mediterranean Sea, making it a great place to stay in Algeria. It's filled with several museums and other places where you could learn all about our culture and history. Monument Des Martyrs The Monument Des Martys is a massive monument that is dedicated to all those who sacrificed their life in war to protect their country. It's visible from many parts of the City and if you go to the top, you have a great view of Algiers and the Mediterranean Sea. Jardin d'Essaie du Hamma This 3,000,000 square foot park is home to over 2,000 different plant species. With several walkways and great sights, you'll be sorry if you don't see this. Oran Oran is just to the west of Algiers. It also sits on the Mediterranean coast and has an interesting historical background dating back to the 10th century. Last but not least... Constantine And right behind it is: Don't Forget to try these things too. Camel Trekking Nothing is quite like riding a camel through the desert. If you want something a little more relaxing, this might be for you. Couscous When you're in Algeria, be sure to try some couscous. It's a traditional Algerian dish consisting of pasta that is served with just about any sort of stew or soup that you can think of. Chapel of Santa Cruz The Chapel of Santa Cruz sits high above the city and has a huge statue of the Virgin Mary that greets you at the entrance. If your in Oran, you've got to see this. The Santa Cruz Fort Constructed in the 1500's by the Spanish, it's survived generation after generation. It still remains intact today, and provides a truly awesome view of the whole city. It also has an underground tunnel system that connects it to two other forts that once protected the city from attack. Constantine is a city that sits on top of a plateau that's over 2,000 feet above sea level. Not only that, it has a massive ravine going right through the middle of it. The entire city is a geographical marvel that your eyes won't believe. There are several bridges like these that cross directly over the ravine. If you're into heights, this place is definitely for you. Constantine is literally built on the edge of the ravine, with buildings and roads that are only a few inches from the edge. Djemila Djemila is the location of an Ancient Roman town that has remained incredibly preserved over the centuries. It's located just west of Constantine and if you have the time, it's definitely worth a visit. Djemila has an ancient theater built on a hillside that has remained almost completely intact for over 1500 years. Come and see Algeria. Where we have something for everybody. What are you waiting for? The Notre Dame d'Afrique is a chapel located on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Built in 1859, it's architecture is similar to chapels built in France. Due to its location, it can only be accessed by cable car. Notre Dame d'Afrique The Central military Museum uses modern architecture and provides several historical items from past wars such as tanks and artillery units. In addition, it has several historical artifacts dating back thousands of years. Central Military Museum This has been a presentation by: Ryan Cuddy Modern World History
