When people can't tell the difference between your city during the 3rd Crusade and 2013. It's time to get your **** together.

I believe that while it is very old, they were very advanced for their time. The old architecture withstood the test of time and still looks beautiful.

They have the technology to renovate, and have electricity etc., but why change the look of it when it already has much culture and looks amazing?

not the syrian people... the Greeks and Romans who built that country and the arabs just moved in after killing the byzzies

bro, the Arabs were there first, THEN the Greeks conquered the land, and THEN the Romans, and THEN the Arabs took it back again from the Byzantine empire (which was the remnants of the Roman empire). it was built by Arabs

Wasnt it taken back last by the Turks?

yes, the Ottoman Turks.

however, the Ottomans (in the region) were primarily ethnically Arab, I do believe.

Actually Turks are ethnically from around Georgia (the country not the state ...) or russia I think

the Turks in the region

the Turks were a group of pastoralist people who assimilated others into their growing empire, so in the area, the Turks comprised of many of the native people who were ethnically Arab

It was a news segment about Damascus history mostly during that time. Wich was relevant due to the war that threatens the land
