BEIRUT - LEBANON
Beirut is the capital and largest city of Lebanon. Located at the peninsula of the Mediterranean Sea, it serves as the country's main seaport. After the destructive Lebanese civil war, Beirut underwent major reconstruction, and the redesigned historic city center, marina, pubs and nightlife districts have once again rendered it a popular tourist attraction. The Los Angeles Beirut Sister City organization was established to create a bridge of understanding and friendship between the residents of these two great cities, and to foster cultural, social, and business exchange.
