“Beirut Central District is the financial center of Lebanon, as well as the historical and geographical center of its capital. Severely damaged during the 15 year long civil war (1975-1990), it’s reconstruction constitutes one of the most ambitious urban redevelopment projects anywhere in the world. Now nearing its completion and successfully enjoying a vibrant second lease of life, here are 10 sights and activities to pursue in unique juxtapositions of old and new Beirut.”
“This is one of the last big parks in Beirut that are left over. As so many places in this city, this place has as well a historical story. This park is located on the green line which used to separate the fighting neighbourhoods. After many years of being closed for any citizens, it is finally again open to the public. It is a wonderful place to have a walk or a run. Especially very early in the morning it is magical since you will see the sunrise behind the mountains and the mingling of all kind of different people to do sports. ”
