More than 5000 year old civilization and the city looks very old. The country looks rundown almost, but did not feel uncomfortable there for some reason. I visited the old part of Damascus; I have been to “Hammam” that was dated back nearly 900 years. I also visited the house where they shot the popular Syrian TV serial “Babb Elhara”.over 4 years ago
I lived in Damascus, Syria for two and a half years between the ages of two and four and a half. I don’t remember much about the realities of living there; rather I remember the heat, the dust, the market, the park, the market, the people, the atmosphere. It sparked my love for the Middle East and Arabic culture. I would recommend this amazing place to any traveller who is willing to go somewhere a bit different, a bit off the beaten track.over 5 years ago
