General Information About The City:
Beirut is the capital city of Lebanon. Located on a peninsula at the midpoint of Lebanon’s Mediterranean coast, Beirut is also the country’s largest and main financial centre with one of the biggest harbours. An independent municipality, Beirut is Lebanon’s largest and main seaport, handling approximately 60% of the nation’s total cargo traffic.
The name “Beirut” has risen from the Phoenician term “that describes a well-populated city-state”, by way of Classical Syriac: ܒܝܠܝܘܪ. There are several ‘major’ sights in Beirut, including the downtown area, which contains Rue Hamra, Beirut’s busy commercial street. The Corniche has a number of cafes that are popular evening spots for people to gather, drink coffee, smoke shisha, and watch passersby.
Other notable sights include the harbour itself along both sides of the city, particularly the Corniche Beirut promenade, which is alongside the Mediterranean sea. Beirut is currently experiencing rapid growth as an economic centre thanks to Lebanon’s other main ports of Latakia, Tripoli, and Jounieh. The economy of Lebanon recovered from the war, and flourished particularly in the 1990s, despite the political unrest of the Réné Moawad era. This is demonstrated by Beirut’s re-emergence as a financial hub for the Middle East. Beirut is home to over 6,000 international companies with 63 banks operating branches in Beirut.
