Tobruk, Libya

Tobruk, Libya

Tobruk has not been designed to meet the needs of tourists, and its present attractions are something as odd as war cemeteries, two near Tobruk, for allied troops. The German war cemetery is a bit further away.
Tobruk has become more lively than ever, thanks to the air sanctions imposed on Libya. Many come from Egypt to Tobruk, which is the first major Libyan city after crossing from Egypt into Libya.
