Come with me to the Casbah

Algeria celebrates its National Pavilion Day today.

The Algeria Pavilion in Zone C represents the architectural style of North Africa and Algeria by featuring Algiers' old town of Kashi Ba (Kasbah, Casbah), a world-renowned quarter of narrow lanes, souks and mystery.

In the 1,000-square-meter pavilion, visitors can take a walk in the replicated lanes, watch the short film "Walking in Kashi Ba," and walk to the "top" of the city and overlook the streets. Virtual scenes give visitors vivid impressions of life in Algiers, old and new.

Algeria past, present and future is showcased.

Huge screens show the modern faces of Algeria and the push for prosperous and harmonious development, honoring both tradition and progress.
