Additional Information

Find more Syria information on the sites listed below.

The strategic importance of Syria is due to its unique position at the meeting point of three continents, Asia, Africa and Europe, and at the crossroads between the Caspian Sea, the Black Sea, the Indian Ocean, and the Nile. The Silk Road led from China to Doura-Europos (Salhieh), from Palmyra, and Homs to Syria's coastal ports on the Mediterranean. This geographical position lent distinction to the country, not only as a trade and caravan route but also as a melting-pot of ideas, beliefs and talents.

Syria has a pleasant and varied Mediterranean climate with four distinct seasons. The average temperature is 32° C. (90° F) in Summer,10° C. (50° F) in Winter and 22° C. (72° F) in Spring and Autumn.
