Here such natural trifles make rest in thisthe country is very pleasant. Although many tourists are afraid to travel to Muslim countries for beach holidays, as they are new to their laws and traditions, Tunisia does not concern this.
Here you can swim in swimsuits, but on the streets or in a mosque in shorts and open tops it is better not to appear.
Once this town was the residence of Caesar, andIts name is familiar to everyone who at least superficially studied the history of the Ancient World. Carthage was part of the Phoenician state. Brave travelers from the city of Tire, led by the queen from the insidious brother Pygmalion queen Didona, founded the city, having bought a large plot of land from the local tribe by cunning.
At the request of the tsarina, the chiefs of the local aboriginesagreed to sell her as much land as she could cover the skin of a bull. Perhaps they were amused by such a prospect, but they did not know what a clever Phoenician queen could do. Cutting the skin into the finest strips, she overlaid with such a large piece of land that it was possible to build a powerful fortress, which was done by fugitives from the Phoenician city of Tire. This fortress was called Bierce, which in translation from Phoenician means skin.
The convenient location of Carthage and its strategic importance as a port on the way of ships from different countries, always made it a "lucrative prey" for those who wanted to take his wealth to his hands.
