The capital city of Algeria is a mish-mash of architecture and atmosphere, with every inch of the city belying its intriguing history. There are wide and elegant boulevards dating back the days of French occupation, stark monuments and office blocks built by the socialists, and the labyrinthine Casbah: the traditional Islamic heart of the city. Algiers may not be a tourist hot spot, but it’s definitely a city well worth discovering to.
