Hi Grincas, Neringa and Trinti,
How are you?
Welcome to this thread!
It's so nice to meet new friends from different countries. Please write more about your traditions and customs.
Dear Mohsen had written about his country "Iran" so I am going to write about mine "Syria"...
Syria is a country in Western Asia covers an area of 185,180 km2. Syria's neighboring countries are Turkey, Iraq, Jordan, Palestine and Lebanon. It consists of 14 provinces and the capital is Damascus which is the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world.
Syria has a traditional society with a long cultural history. Importance is placed on family, religion, education and self-discipline and respect. The Syrians are very kind, peaceful and helpful people. In Syria there was the first alphabet by The Phoenicians which discovered in Ugarit (modern Ras-Shamra)..
the climate in Syria is mild and the nature is wonderful. there are a lot of different magical places. For example, the northwest part is bordering the Mediterranean and it's full of green areas and mountains, in the northeast of the country you can enjoy the beauty of the desert. On the other hand, there are a lot of famous historical places which Tourists from all over the world come to see.
I really recommend you to visit Syria because it's one of the wonderful places in the world.
*All the love to our country, proud to be Syrian.
