Middle East

Middle East Map
Middle East is a world region that encompasses Western Asia and a part of North Africa. It is the perfect destination for history buffs and for pilgrims; civilization started in these lands, also the three largest religions on the planet. Judaism, Christianity and Islam can all trace their roots back to the same area of the globe, as can modern civilization. Left behind is an astonishing open-air museum of ancient cities and historic buildings, the stones of which still resonate with the sounds of the faithful. Most precious exhibits of the museum are the ruins of Arabian historical and archaeological city of Petra in Jordan, Persepolis in the Fars Province of modern Iran, the ancient Greek city of Ephesus in Turkey and the roman sanctuary of Baalbek in Lebanon. Home to some of the world's most significant cities - Jerusalem, Cairo, Damascus, Baghdad and Istanbul, Middle East enjoys its visitors with breathtaking sceneries: from the stunning mountains of the north and the underwater world of the Red Sea to the unrivalled seas of sand dunes and palm-fringed lakes in Saudi Arabia's Rub' al Khali desert. Recently this region of the world has become a cosmopolitan destination because of the rich, luxury and high tech Dubai. Dubai is an architectural gem, both in the concept and size of its buildings; since landmarks in Dubai have emerged – the Burj Al Arab and the Palm Jumeirah – every year thousands of tourists come to take a closer look at these modern days wonders.
