On the land of today's city was one of the oldest settlements of man. Numbers of objects from the prehistoric times were discovered in this place. In 15th century BC the Phoenicians resided here and named their settlement Beirut. Around 500 AD, the Romans settled there. In this period the significant Law School was established there. In 635 AD successfully developing city was acquired by Arabs. In 1763 was Beirut the center of the Eastern Mediterranean and Arab intellectuals. From 1975 to 1991 a civil war passed over. Beirut has been divided into Muslim and Christian. In so-called Green Line that divided the rival parties, bombed houses still can be seen. During the war the town was almost destroyed. Yet the number of monuments stayed preserved. During the city reconstruction, hidden Roman and Phoenician relics were discovered. The most interesting places are the Museum of American universities, Sursock museum or so called Pigeon Rocks. These rocks are dominants of the city. In Beirut is eight universities, the most famous one is American university. Social center of Beirut is star-shaped Nejmeh Square with the clock tower.
