Algiers is not among the biggest cities compared to the rest of the world, but it is the largest, most populated and busiest in Algeria. My city is full of nice people, but not a lot of fun places to go. The society is a bit conservative and it is not okay to show affection in public places.

Anyone moving here must have a particular set of skills to land a job and be able to live to its overwhelming expenses. I live in an industrial zone that’s not really suitable for an easy life, it’s rather a place for work.

Algiers is a beautiful city, it’s in the capital of Algeria. In Algiers, you will find such beautiful places to visit, it varies from historical buildings to natural views. The transportation there is based on using buses and subway, the subway is more comforter to use. When it comes to the cost of life, it’s very affordable.

If someone moves to my country, Algiers is somewhere between the traditional and modern North African cities. There are plenty of job offers, especially for foreigners, so they won’t have much trouble finding a job. Housing is also widely available, so they can find a flat pretty quickly. And there are a lot of fun activities! They can visit many museums, tourist sites, beaches, all less than 60 miles from Algiers.

Algiers is located opposite the Bay of Algiers, the second most beautiful bay in the world after that of Brazilia. There is also Hanna’s garden where very rare trees and plants from around the world exist. The visitor will be able to enjoy Algerian dishes and visit the museums of Algiers which tell the history of Algeria from antiquity to the present time.
