The Lebanese Republic has 250km of coastline on the Eastern Mediterranean; the slither of land, a world of hope.
Lebanon gets its name from the mountains that rise from the coastal plain, to the east of Beirut.
Qurnat as-Sawda', in the north of the Lebanon Mountains, is the country's highest peak; at 3,083 metres above sea level.
The coast was colonised by the seafaring Phoenicians, in around 2500 BC, and Phoenicia became one of the richest and most important provinces of the Persian empire; after the Persians conquered Nebuchadnezzar II's Babylonia; in 539 BC.
Lebanon's modern development as a country can be a attributed to the cohesive polices of the French who arrived in 1920.
The French went along with the Maronite's beliefs in Mount Lebanon, and established the Lebanese Republic in 1926.
Lebanon gained full independence when the last French troops withdrew in 1946.
On April 26th, 2005 Syria officially pulled the last of their troops out of Lebanon.

Weather in the Middle East:
Local weather forecasts for destinations around the Middle East.
Lebanon's diverse patchwork of Mediterranean-lapped coast, rugged alpine peaks, and green fertile valleys is packed into a parcel of land some 225km long and 46km wide; an area around the size of Cyprus or Connecticut.
Landscapes that change with the seasons, but are always bathed in the warm sun. The daylight rising over Lebanon brings endless opportunities of fun, beach, nature and outdoor activities.
Visit Lebanon in summer to discover it's beaches and archaeological sites. But also visit Lebanon in winter, to ski and experience its beautiful white mountains.
The Mazaar Ski Resort is situated just above the village of Ouyoune El Simane, in the Kfardebian area of Mount Lebanon. The area's three connected ski domains boast more than 80 kilometres of ski runs.
The cedar tree is the emblem of Lebanon, and not far from Beirut are some 400 of them, believed to be over 1,500 years old.
Fashionable and trendy, Beirut is the cultural epicentre of Lebanon; bustling with life and oozing with charisma.
The former 'Pearl of the Middle East' is once again an exquisite experience; a bewildering composition of cultures and faiths, perched on a breathtaking sweep of Mediterranean coastline.
The Romans built up Baalbeck, once Pompey the Great took control of the area, in 64 BC.
The temple ruins that can be seen today show the significance of the region within the Roman Empire.
From earliest times Tripoli, in north Lebanon, was not really a city, but three cities in one; hence its name Tripolis, or the 'Tri-city'.
Built on a rocky promontory on the East Mediterranean coast, Tripoli stood halfway between the great rival commercial centers of Antioch and Tyre.
Tripoli is a very rich city in historical monuments and proud of its traditions; one of the places that you must consider visiting on your next trip to Lebanon.
Tripoli is a prosperous business and tourist centre with many new hotels built inside and on the outskirts of the city.
