Beirut - Paris of the East - Capital of Lebanon

The capital and largest city of Lebanon with over 1 million inhabitants is located in the western part of the country on the Mediterranean Sea.

The Beirut Central District or Centre Ville is the name given to Beirut’s historical and geographical heart. The district is a cluster of stone-façade buildings lining arcaded streets and radial alleyways. The architecture of the area is a mix of French Architecture and Venetian Gothic architecture mixed with Arabesque and Ottoman influences.

The District contains tens of restaurants, cafes and pubs, as well as a wide range of shopping stores mainly in Beirut Souks.

Awesome color of the buildings or this is just the tone of the postcard itself from the time of the day the scene was captured?
