Diving into the Lost and the Mysterious City of Sifar

Algeria is the land of richness in terms of races, dialects, natural resources and archeological sites. As evidence, the Algerian Sahara embraces a very vast plateau called Tassili N’Ajjer (which means in Tamazight “Plateau of the rivers”), in the province of Elizi, covering an area of 72,000 square kilometers. In the heart of this breathtaking plateau, a panoramic view (forest of rocks) of a strange lunar landscape with its eroded sandstone that dates back to the prehistoric era, called the City of Sifar. It is considered as the largest fossilized city in the world and the eighth wonder of the world.


The earth outward is comprised of many countries, some small some, others are landlocked countries and other are very super populated. In this article, we elaborate the biggest country in the world that occupies huge areas and stretch across the continents or even can contain a large area of water surface. Every country has its own unique features that either attracts the tourist or its visitors.
This article will be very helpful in educating readers the top ten biggest countries in this world that are the real giants.


The city of Oran is a beautiful coastal city that, when constructed, was inspired by the seaside resort of France’s Nice. It is one of Algeria’s most important cities, as it has much cultural, commercial and industrial importance, as well as being one of the country’s most visited cities. In the past, the city was used for trading purposes until it was ruled by the French.


Annaba is a coastal city that underwent significant growth during the 20th Century. Annaba has a metropolitan area with a higher population density than the other metropolitan areas of the Algerian coastline, such as Oran and Algiers. Much of eastern and southern Algeria uses the services, equipment, and infrastructure of Annaba. Economically, it is the centre for various economic activities, such as industry, transportation, finance, and tourism


Sétif, also called Stif, town, northeastern Algeria, near the Wadi Bou Sellam. As ancient Sitifis, it became important when the Roman emperor Nerva established a veterans’ colony there in 97 CE. Sitifis became the chief town of the province of Mauretania Sitifensis (created 297 CE) and remained so under Byzantine rule. The town declined until garrisoned by the French in 1838. In 1945 the Sétif town area was the site of a spontaneous outburst against French colonial rule, and more than 100 Europeans were killed. In retaliation, by Algerian count after the fact, between 6,000 and 8,000 Muslims were massacred. The area around Sétif was developed as a centre of cereal cultivation during the French colonial period, and wheat is processed in local factories to produce semolina, couscous (cracked wheat), and noodles.


Tamanrasset, also called Tamanghasset and (after 1981) Tamenghest, formerly Fort Laperrine, town, southern Algeria. Located in the mountainous Ahaggar (Hoggar) region on the Wadi Tamanghasset, the town originated as a military outpost, guarding trans-Saharan trade routes. It has become an important way station on the north-south asphalt road called the Trans-Sahara Highway via northern Algeria, which reached Tamanrasset in 1980. Although the desert climate is mitigated by the town’s elevation of 4,521 feet (1,378 metres), some of the world’s highest known shade temperatures (exceeding 100 °F [38 °C]) have been recorded there at the Jules Carde Observatory.
