Syria: Damascus

The capital of Syria is Damascus. Damascus is located in the southwest of Syria, only 15 kilometers from the border with Libya. Damascus is one of the oldest cities on earth that were continuously inhabited by humans. It is an important center of culture and religions.

Damascus was first mentioned on a hieroglyphic tablet of the ancient Egyptians around 3500 years ago. Unfortunately, today’s Damascus is no longer what it used to be. Here, too, the war has left its mark.
