Algiers

Algiers

Algiers is Algeria’s capital and biggest city. The population of the city was predicted to be approximately 3,500,000 in 2011. The population of the major metropolitan metropolis is estimated to be approximately 5,000,000 people. Algiers is a city on the Mediterranean Sea in Algeria’s north-central region.

While the city of Algiers seems to be contemporary, the capital is trying to keep up with the country’s fast expansion. Many of its citizens have a low level of life. In the last decade, Algiers has also been plagued by violence. Much of the nation was devastated by a civil war that began in 1991. Things have now returned to normal (at least in Algiers). The infrastructure has undergone extensive renovation, which is currently underway.

Locals refer to Algiers as El-Djazar, and they speak Berber, Arabic, and French.

Algiers is not a well-known tourist destination, and the US State Department advises against visiting other regions of the country. The majority of the notable sites of Algiers are in the ancient city, known as the Casbah or Medina. Those who do make it to Algiers are wowed by the people’s friendliness and hospitality. The numerous historic French buildings, the coastal promenade, and the restaurants all get high marks.
