The Ancient City of Bosra

Probably the best preserved Roman theatre in the Middle east. It was built in the second half of the II century. During hundreds of years the sand of the desert covered the fortress built by Muslims and the original building within.

It is 102 meters long and it could seat more than 12.000 people.
