A beautiful country located in north Africa. it has the richest culture and history. both Berber and Arab origins make up the country. Best people you'll ever meet. Very nice and hospitable and has the best architecture and natural beauty ever. The people are very united i.e 2019 protests to get rid of Bouteflika and they have the craziest and funniest obsession with soccer(African Cup Of Nations 2019)

Somehow even tho it's a country that people are proud to be from because of the Franco-Algerian war.
there's a lot more you don't know about Algeria and it's people.
-Algeria is such a horrible place to visit if you're a tourist (no don't go just because it's "the widest country in Africa" , Algerian people are craving to run away from this place , we've reached to cross the sea illegaly to go to France/Spain , which...most of us ended up loosing their life trying to do so , and it became a very usual thing)
-The education system is SO HORRIBLE (yes be thankful it's free) but no.
- Algerian people's attitude from kids to adults:
Algeria have many different people with different personalities but ,all I gotta day is ..be careful most of the algerian society is toxic , you can find a lot of racism especially towards black and Asian people ,they'll start mocking you, throwing rocks at you (especially little kids)..
Second of all , homosexuality/lgbtq+ community...don't come here , you'll either find yourself dead , made fun of , or harassed.
-The daily struggles of algerian women , you won't get out a day without being assaulted or catcalled ..literally ,if a 16 years old tells you her 27 years old boyfriend did this and that , don't be surprised, the Algerian society doesn't really know about pedophilia or anything.

a nation in northern africa along the medditeranian. most of its people live along the coast, as the interior is as a barren desert. inhabited by people of berber decent, it had a history of piracy (the barbary coast). in the 1800s, the french colonized this place and a very very bloody war for independence occured in the 1950s. the democratic government has had problems since then, including assassinations, coups, single party rule, and terrorism. while the nation currently elects its leaders in what are considered free elections, its an open secret that politicians are subsurviant to miliatry leaders.

Algeria; Arabic: الجزائر‎, al-Jazā’ir; Berber: Dzayer or Ldzayer), officially the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria (also formally referred to as the Democratic and Popular Republic of Algeria), is a country in the Maghreb. In terms of land area, it is the largest country on the Mediterranean Sea, the largest in the Arab world and second-largest on the African continent. after Sudan, and the 11th-largest country in the world. It will become the largest African country once the secession of Southern Sudan from Sudan takes place on 9 July 2011.

Algeria is bordered in the northeast by Tunisia, in the east by Libya, in the west by Morocco, in the southwest by Western Sahara, Mauritania, and Mali, in the southeast by Niger, and in the north by the Mediterranean Sea. Its size is almost 2,400,000 square kilometres (926,645 sq mi), and it has an estimated population of 35.7 million (2010). The capital of Algeria is Algiers.

Algeria is a member of the Arab League, United Nations, African Union, and OPEC. It is also a founding member of the Arab Maghreb Union
Algeria, a gateway between Africa and Europe, has been battered by violence over the past half-century.

More than a million Algerians were killed in the fight for independence from France in 1962, and the country has recently emerged from a brutal internal conflict that followed scrapped elections in 1992.

Algeria for dummies:

Yes, politically an Arab country, majority are of berber ethnicity (first settlers of North Africa). Yes the French colonised it, one of France's bloodiest wars in fact, pretty heartbreaking; however it's people fought back and won their independence.
Little Mediterranean coast to the North, can get green in some parts, 90% is pretty much desert, not much to do or see, not safe, yea has a history of terrorism. If you really want to see North Africa, I suggest Morocco, maybe Tunisia, nowhere else really. If you are that eager to visit I highly recommend you learn some easy and useful Algerian Arabic (dialect) or French, English is useless over there. Get used to people staring at you like an alien from Jupiter. You will most likely need a Visa, yes even for Americans, country not that fond of America.

And by the way, go to Morocco, far better, safer, nicer, etc.
I am in the desert, there is only one nice hotel in the entire country, people look at me funny, I am in Algeria.
