Bibliotheca Alexandrina

Things To Do-alexandria Bibliotheca

It  was recently discovered in 1967 when work was ahead to construct modern building on its site. It is the only Roman Theater in Egypt and is worth enough to visit. The theater has semicircular tiers made of white and gray marbles imported from Europe. This can accommodate about 800 spectators. Two of the marble columns are still standing by the theater. To the north of the theater lies the Roman baths which was built in the 3rd century B.C. The baths retain the style of the Romans in constructing pools, pipes and the hypocaust.

The Roman theatre is located in the modern area of Kom El-Dikaa, which is almost in the centre of the city of Alexandria, Egypt  bordered by Horrya street from the north, Nabi Daniel street from the west, Abdel Moneim street from the south, and Saphia Zaghloul street from the east.
