Known as 'The Port City on the Mediterranean', Benghazi is the second largest city in Libya, after the country's capital Tripoli. As the nickname suggests, Benghazi sits on the country's northern coast, and it offers some stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea, with its beautiful blue waters and sandy beaches. Living in Benghazi can be a rewarding experience, with its fair share of cultural offerings: the Roman Catholic Cathedral, which was built in the 1920s, is the largest civic building in the city, and will help you get your bearings no matter where you are, while the Al-Bosco zoological gardens gives you a place to rest, as well as somewhere to get a thrill on one of the many electronic rides. As the InterNations community grows in Benghazi, members will be able to arrange meet-ups with other expats living in Benghazi, sharing stories of what it's like to live abroad and offering help to those that are new to the area. The InterNations website has everything else you need to make your first steps in Benghazi a lot more pleasant.
