Welcome to Syria

Since dawn of time, Syria has been a crossroads of civilization, though often described as the cradle of civilizations. It has been the bridge connecting the cultures of Eastern Mediterraneans and Fertile Crescent, and the beginning of Silk Road joining West with East.

It was here that cultures of Mari and Ugarit rose and fell, where Assyrian, Sumerian, Phoenician, Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek and Roman empires and cultures met and influenced each other.

In this land, Man discovered the secrets of Agriculture, Metallurgy, and invented the very first alphabet.
