From sun-drenched Mediterranean beaches to a sea of Sahara sand, Libya is a land of harsh and ancient beauty. Libyan Berbers have watched from camelback for thousands of years as the great Greek, Roman, and Ottoman empires rose and fell. But change has come swiftly to Libya in modern times. Rich oil deposits brought money and technology that transformed a nation of nomadic tribes into a network of sophisticated cities with one of the highest standards of living in Africa. After overthrowing their long-ruling terrorist dictator, Muammar Gaddafi, today's Libyans are building a free nation. Come, visit the new Libya, where joyfully free people celebrate a rich past and a bright future.
