AL MONTAZAH PARK

Al Montazah Park is located in Alexandria, Egypt, and it includes two palaces: El Salamlek & Al Haramlik, both surrounded by royal gardens looking out on the Mediterranean Sea.

EL Salamlek palace was constructed by Khedive Abbas II in 1892 during his reign to the Hungarian noble Marianna Torok whom he married after. In 1932, king Foad built a larger palace,which is Al Haramlik next to El Salamlek palace and added the royal gardens.

Al Haramlik served as a summer palace and was forged on the Turkish and Florentine styles.Each floor included open arcades with a sea view.

After a while, President Anwar El-Sadat renewed the original Salamlek Palace as an official presidential residence. Unfortunately, the palace is not available for the public, only the royal gardens is open for visitors.
