Although small river Bekaa able to supply water to agriculture in central areas of Lebanon. In the past, this valley was covered with pine trees, but the population has destroyed this natural resource for making boats and release of land for agriculture.
The capital and largest city is Beirut. According to informed sources Beirut is the most modern European city in the Middle East.
Main attractions in Beirut worth visiting are the Greek Orthodox Cathedral Saint George, National Museum of Beirut mosque Mohammed al-Amin and Jane Cave. In our opinion, the most interesting of all the attractions Cave Jane.
At the bottom to navigate a boat on an underground river, and at the top on foot. The cave is very well lit for a pleasant stroll. The second most important among attractions in Lebanon is an ancient city of Byblos. Byblos City is among the cities survived 7000 years without being abandoned during the whole period of its existence.
