The story

In October 2022, I led a small group of curious travellers through Lebanon and Syria. More than five years have passed since the brutal civil war, but the destruction is still visible everywhere. The war affected all regions except the central parts of Damascus and some other areas, leaving horrific scars throughout the country.


During the Syrian civil war, the Syrian military and the Syrian opposition fought over the city of Homs, a key rebel stronghold.

Despite the turmoil, Syria remains an attractive country full of history, impressive architecture and ancient ruins, beautiful villages and towns, inhabited by extremely friendly people.
