The State of Libya takes up a generous portion of Northern Africa, offering a centralized location for access to the Mediterranean Sea. It is bordered by Egypt, Algeria, Sudan, and Chad – amongst others. It became independent in 1951 as a monarchy, which was eventually overthrown by a coup and the leader, Muammar Gaddafi, ruled the country for nearly four decades.
Political and social instability is common in Libya. It is advised that any travelers to this nation implement war zone safety measures during their stay. That includes avoiding large public gatherings and sites that may offer the potential of conflict. Visa requirements are known to change frequently and rapidly.
When you can make it into Libya, be sure to visit Leptis Magna. Because of its Mediterranean location, Libya held a high level of importance during the time of the Roman Empire. Leptis Magna, or Neapolis, was a prominent city during that time. You can find its ruins in Al Khums and they are some of the best Roman ruins that can be seen in the world today. The Arch of Septmius Severus is particularly impressive.
Exploring Cyrene is another fascinating opportunity Libya provides. This ancient Greek settlement was one of the most important cities in the region, from the 6th through 4th centuries BC. It would eventually become a Roman city as well. Called the “Athens of Africa,” the Temple of Zeus is particularly notable. Many of the artifacts recovered from Cyrene are on display in natural museums around the world.
Libya can be a challenging destination, but it offers a lot of potential for the adventurer. Plan your stay with care and it may be a very rewarding experience.
