Historically, the name of Libya was given to the region located in North Africa between Egypt and Tunisia, in relation to Allibo tribe, which was stated for the first time in the Egyptian texts in thirteenth century BC. The area of Libya is about 1,800,000 square kilometers, and its population is roughly 6.597 millions, which is considered very small compared to its huge area, which is the seventeenth biggest in the world. Libya has the longest coastline among the countries on the Mediterranean Sea.
The climate in Libya is quite fair in the spring and autumn, hot in summer and cold in winter. Libya is a combination of alluring sea-side resorts, beautiful desert plains and mountainous attractions. Libya is characterized with many ancient Roman and Greek monuments.
