Founding cities was one of
Alexander's favorite activities.
He founded seventeen of
them and called them all "Alexandria". While some of these,
such as Alexandria (Egypt) flourished, others did not
survive to our present day.
Over the centuries, other
communities followed suit and named new cities after
Alexandria (Egypt), or Alexander the Great.
Below is a listing of all the major cities around the world
in our present day which are called "Alexandria".
Some of these were, however, named after Russian emperors,
Popes, or other famous leaders.
