Introducing Bosra

The brooding black basalt town of Bosra (or Bosra ash-Sham), with its impressive, imposing citadel and one of the best-preserved Roman theatres in existence, is a must-do experience. The Nabataean capital in the 1st century BC and the capital of the Roman Province of Arabia from AD 106, Bosra has multiple layers of architectural history, making it one of Syria’s most engaging sights. As there is little else to see in town, a day trip from Damascus leaves ample time for most travellers to take in everything at a leisurely pace.
