10000$ Al Mansoura, Egypt, winner: Corina Corduneanu

10000$ Al Mansoura, Egypt II,




Al Mansurah (also spelled as Mansoura) (Arabic: المنصورة), with a population of 1,600,000, is considered to be Egypt's third largest city after Cairo and Alexandria. It is the capital of Dakahliya province.
(31°3′N 31°23′E) Mansurah lies on the east bank of the Domiat branch of River Nile, in the delta region. Mansurah is about 120 km northeast of Cairo and 40 km north of the town of Mit Ghamr. Across from Al Mansurah, on the opposite bank of the Nile, is the town of Talkha.

[edit]


Mansurah was established in 1219 by Al Malek Al Adel Ayoub. After the Muslims defeated the Crusaders on its land during the Seventh Crusade it was named Al Mansurah—" The Victorious").

In the Seventh Crusade, the French were defeated and put to flight; between fifteen and thirty thousand of their men fell on the battlefield. Upwards of one hundred thousand horsemen, infantry, trades-people, and others, were made slaves. Louis IX of France was captured in the main battle and confined in the house of Ibrahim­ben Lokman, secretary to the sultan, and under the guard of the eunuch Sahil. The king's brother was made prisoner at the same time, and carried to the same house. The sultan provided for their subsistence. The house in now the only museum in Al Mansoura, is open to the public and houses articles that used to belong to the French royals, including his personal thirteenth century toilet.




Dakahliya province is famous for producing some of the most acclaimed Egyptians in the fields of science, engineering, medicine and arts. Most famous among them is the chanteuse Umm Kolthoum. There is a square bearing her name in the city, where her statue stands.

Mansurah is reputed for its beautiful people. Actors aside, a recent testimony to this was Heba El Sisy, Miss Egypt 2004. Also, fair skin and blue or green eyes are not as uncommon in Mansura as they are in the rest of the country. This aspect of Mansurah's reputation is usually attributed to the events surrounding the Seventh Crusade. According to chronicles of the Seventh Crusade by, amongst others, Jean de Joinville, French prisoners of war were captured and settled in and around the city after the French army's defeat

The Egyptian Arabic dialect spoken by Mansurah's population is, broadly speaking, northern Egyptian Arabic but with a noticable influence from the surrounding rural villages, each of which have, over the years, contributed to the city's population. There are some similarities to Alexandrian Egyptian Arabic in some aspects of pronunciation.

Like Cairo and Alexandria, Mansurah was home to a flourishing Greek community until the Nasser era, when many were forced to leave. Many of the older and best established shops and businesses around the city still bear their original Greek names. The first English school in the city was established on the site of the old Greek school in the Toriel area, one of the traditionally relatively affluent residential districts of the city.
