SYRIA - Palmyra - The area was once known as the Bride of the Desert and was a main stopping point for caravan travelers crossing the Syrian desert.


Palmyra, Syria--One of my favorite places I visited in Syria! :)/// Sorry. Get ready to kiss it goodbye. ISIS is destroying it, little, by, little. Yeah, not only has Obama allowed thousands of people too die in that region. He's also sat on his golf cart seat and allow priceless antiquities to be destroyed. Freakin dumb ass.

Theatre of Palmyra Palmyra's Theatre was, until the 1950's, buried beneath the sand, however it has been restored continuously since then. The freestanding stage facade of the theatre itself is designed along the lines of a palace entrance, complete with a royal door and smaller doors on either side. During the Palmyra Festival, which runs from the end of April to the beginning of May, music and dance performances are held in the theatre.
