Lebanon is a small country located on the Mediterranean Sea bordering the countries of Syria and Israel. The country has 7 million inhabitants, 2 million people live in the capital of Beirut. Before the Lebanese Civil War (1975 – 1990), Beirut was known as ‘the Paris of the Middle East’. Beirut is worth a visit, this also applies to the cities of Sidon and Tyre in the south. Tripoli, Lebanon’s second largest city, is rarely visited by tourists. Fortunately, since the end of the Israeli-Lebanese conflict in 2006, in which Hezbollah played an important role, Lebanon is a safe country to visit. Beirut Rafic Hariri Airport is the country’s only international airport and home to national carrier Middle East Airlines.
