Discover TUNIS: The Tunisian Capital City | 10 Interesting Facts You should know about this City !

Tunis is the largest and the capital city of Tunisia. Tunisia is the northernmost country of Africa. The country lies in the Maghreb region of North Africa and borders Algeria to the west and south west, Libya to the south east and the Mediterranean Sea to the north and east. The country covers a total area of 163,610 km2 and has a population estimate of about 11 million people.
Back to Tunis, being the largest city in the country, it has a population estimate of about 2.7 million people. It ranks as the fourth largest city in the Maghreb region after Casablanca, Algiers and Tripoli and also ranks as the sixteenth largest city in the Arab world. The city is geographically located at the Mediterranean Sea gulf behind the Lake of Tunis and the Port of La Goulette and extends along the coastal plain and the hills that surround it. There is much to learn about this city and I invite you to join me as we go through ten interesting facts about Tunis. Let’s get started.

From just looking at the words Tunis and Tunisia, one can tell that they are related. Tunis is a word borrowed from the Arabic language and has various theories behind its naming. Some scholars believe it originated from the Phoenician goddess, Tanith, and hence the city got named in relation to that as it was normal back then for cities to be named after patron deities. Other scholars believe that it originated from the Berber verbal roots ‘ens’ which means ‘to lie down’ or ‘to pass the night’. They name Tunis according to the original sources means to camp at night, to camp or to stop. It is stated that the city was used as a last stop over by people who were travelling to Carthage by land. The city was very important such that when it came to the naming of the country, no other city could have done it best other than Tunis.

The Medina of Tunis, a very phenomenal place as it stands out as one of the very few places on earth where you will find a lot of history. The Medina is home to many monuments such as the Dar Ben Abdallah and Dar Hussein. The Medina was built in 698 AD and was the first Arabo-muslim town in the Maghreb region. It is situated on the Mediterranean coast of Africa and between maritime routes and the caravan routes of the Sahara desert. Tunis opens into the gulf of Tunis with its outer harbor known as LA Goulette built closer to the base of the hills. It has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979.
It contains 700 monuments and fountains dating from the Almohad and the Hafsid periods. The ancient buildings include the Aghlabid Al-Zaytuna Mosque which is the oldest mosque in Tunis and the Dar El Bey or Bey's palace which is believed to stand on remains of a Roman theatre as well as the 10th century palace of Ziadib-Allah II all Aghlab.

Tunis is mostly known for its culture and the history that it carries but is not limited to religion. It is a sacred city as it is a home to various monumental worship centers mostly for the Islamic religion. Tunis is home to the mosque of Al-Zaytuna. It is a major mosque in Tunis which makes the city a place of worship and stand out both in the region and the Arab world. The mosque is termed as the heartbeat center of Tunis. Al-Zaytuna is the oldest mosque in the capital of Tunis and covers an area of 5,000 square meters with nine entrances. It has 160 authentic columns brought originally from the ruins of the old city of Carthage. The mosque is also known to host one of the first and greatest universities in the history of Islam. And lastly, some policies and guidelines have been set site to govern the function of the mosque.

There are also other Christian churches and temples, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Tunis and Evangelical churches.

The ancient city of Carthage which is now the residential suburb of the modern of Tunis was built around a citadel called Byrsa. Carthage was on the Tunisian coast where it influenced and controlled ships passing between Sicily and North African coast as they traversed the Mediterranean Sea. It rapidly became a thriving port and trading center and eventually developed into a major Mediterranean power and a rival to Rome and even fought one of the Punic wars with Rome. The success of the city and the port was becoming a threat to the enemies since Tunis was gaining control of the Mediterranean trade router and these led to various attacks to the city. Captured by the Vandals in AD 439 and the Byzantine Empire in the 6th century, it was taken by Arabs in 705 and was eclipsed by their emphasis on Tunis. The ruins now act as one of the major tourist attraction site in Tunis and if you happen to Visit Tunisia, you should make a point of talking a walk around the ruins and get to be amazed by the ancient civilization. The ruins were designated a UNESCO World Heritage in 1979.

Trying TUNISIAN food! Tunis local food and STREET FOOD tour! الغذاء التونسي

We spent two days in Tunisia's capital of Tunis eating amazing Tunisian food and meeting super friendly locals - some let us sample their food, some gave us free makroudhs (Tunisian pastries) and some shared a giant feast with us while teaching us about Tunisian culture! As you can probably tell, the hospitality is truly amazing in Tunisia, and I am so thankful to everyone who made us feel so welcome in Tunisia!

Now, onto the food - we started our day off at a small, hole-in-the wall restaurant where a very cheerful man served us two classics: lablabi and ojja. Lablabi is a hearty chickpea stew made with harrisa (a spicy chili paste), pieces of bread, tuna and olives. A hearty and delicious start to the tour! The ojja (chicken and vegetables fried together with a lot of harissa and olive oil) may very well have been our favorite dish of this whole tour! Mopping up that caramelized chicken sitting in a pool of spicy harrisa and olive oil was just too good to be true.

After trying some awesome Tunisian tea following our first meal, we made our way to what seemed to be a pretty popular restaurant - El Baraka! Here, we tried an eggplant mix with lots of olive oil and tomatoes which we scooped up with more bread, as well as their signature grilled fish which was super smoky, with crispy skin and extremely tender and juicy meat!

On our way back to our accommodation we tried some Tunisian sweets called makroudh. They were amazing! We were also given these for free by the owners of the stand making them, we are so thankful! The Tunisian hospitality shines through here, once again!

Finally, the next day we meet up with two locals - Yassine and Yassine. Together we enjoy a giant Tunisian feast at the legendary Dar El Jeld, a restaurant a bit fancier than what we're usually used to! The interior was made in traditional Tunisian style and was stunningly beautiful. We tried a lot of food, ranging from fluffy cous cous (Tunisia's national dish), unbelievably tender lamb and stuffed phylo pastries (brik)! Everything was amazing, and on top of that, we were able to learn a lot about Tunisian culture thanks to our new friends, with whom we had a great time!

10 Things Not to Do in Algeria

Get more Tips here!

Algeria, that unknown and yet wonderful country. Not everybody thinks about it when thinking about their holidays but they should. So, to help you prepare your trip we bring you these Things not to do in Algeria.

1) Don't forget your visa
The visa to Algeria isn’t particularly the easiest one and, unfortunately, it’s required for most countries in the world. So try to have it ready before you start your trip and you'll avoid a lot of trouble.

2) Don't Expect Sleep to Be Cheap
Mass tourism doesn’t really exist in Algeria, so hotels are very expensive if we compare them with how cheap anything else is in the country. You can find prices from 30€ to 200€, although, most of them are over 50€ a night. If you're travelling with a lower budget you can always get a youth hostel instead where you'll pay around 2 € per night. On the other hand, you could always try CouchSurfing, making sure the people you choose look safe and have many positive references. It’s a great way to meet local people!

3) Don't forget your dictionary
Most of the younger people do know English but don't hold on that because, it’s not that easy to find people who speak English. The official language in Algeria is Arabic and some people speak French as it was a French colony. So if you want to be able to communicate bring a dictionary in French.

4) Don't get a taxi
Taxis are expensive and they usually try to cheat tourists. You can use the Yassir mobile app which is basically the same as Uber, or get a bus. Although, they don't tend to follow their schedules. Renting a car isn't that cheap either. And if you go to the desert try to book a flight, they're not too expensive and you’ll save some time too.

5) Don't forget your cell
If you want to be able to move freely without a guide and find historical places, hotels or restaurants by yourself, don't forget to bring your cell phone and install the Waze app which is a free driving directions & live traffic map app that works the best in Algeria.

6) Don't travel everywhere
Borders with Libya, Mauritania, Mali and (nisher) Niger are absolutely no-go zones in Algeria, they're the most dangerous ones, as are remote or mountains areas. But don't worry because these areas are far from all the tourist attractions.

7) Don't rely on having Wi-fi everywhere
Sure big hotels, offices, and random apartments are sure to have a wifi connection. However, if you’re out and about and want to use the internet in Algeria you'll need to get a local sim card with data which will cost you around 5-10€ per month. And, out of the 3 different networks they have, choose Mobilis, it has a better range.

8) Don't forget your money
Here, the local currency is Algerian dinar. And there are not many places where ATM machines accept international bank cards. Sure, you could try the airports, huge hotels like Sheraton or regular banks, but sometimes they're out of money. So to avoid being left without money, bring some emergency cash too .

9) Don't start your diet
In Algeria, they eat a lot of fast food such as shawarma and fries, they're very cheap and you'll find them everywhere. But you can always go to a restaurant to eat nice food, if you prefer, which will cost you about the same as western European restaurants do. Oh, and don’t forget, drinking alcohol in public is forbidden.

10) Don't think it’s all just sand
When people think of Algeria they imagine riding camels in the desert. But, guess what? There are also cars, buses and trains, just like your city, yep. This is a civilized country! Sure, the Sahara desert occupies four-fifths of the Algerian territory, but they also have a coastline, ancient Roman Empire ruins and stunning heritage of the Ottoman Empire, Spain, France and much more.

Where do you want to know what not to do in next?
