Port Said

Port Said is a city located in the north-eastern region of Egypt, on the Mediterranean Sea. It is at the northern end of the Suez Canal, and is the country’s sixth largest city. The city has a population of over 500,000 and is a major economic hub for the region.

Port Said has a long and rich history. It was founded in the early 19th century by Said Pasha, the viceroy of Egypt, to serve as the northern terminus of the Suez Canal. The city was built on a low-lying strip of land between the Mediterranean Sea and Lake Manzala, and was designed to be the main port for the canal.

The Suez Canal was a major engineering feat of its time, and it was completed in 1869. The canal allowed ships to travel between the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea, which greatly reduced the time it took to travel between Europe and Asia.

Port Said also played a major role in World War II. It was the site of a major Allied victory in the Battle of Port Said, which took place in November 1942. The battle was fought between British, Australian, and New Zealand forces, and the German and Italian forces. The Allied forces were victorious, and the battle was seen as a major turning point in the war in North Africa.

Port Said is also a popular tourist destination, as it offers a variety of attractions. Visitors can explore the city’s many historical sites, including the Suez Canal Museum, the Port Said Lighthouse, and the Port Said War Memorial. In addition, the city is home to a number of beautiful beaches and parks, as well as a vibrant nightlife.
