Petra is a famous historic site and the remains of the ancient Greek city of Petra located now on the territory of Jordan. It was a large city in the mountains, with the premises and buildings carved or built right in the rocks (the name Petra takes source from the word 'rock'). The first settlement appeared there centuries before Christ and it used to be an important city located on the commercial ways from China and the Far East to Europe. Before Greeks, the area was inhabited by the Nabataean people who were excellent in stone carving and commerce. The city flourished during the rule of Ancient Greek and Roman kings but later on started declining as people began looking for ways to live near water. Today, Petra is one of the most interesting relics of the old times preserved rather well. Every year it is visited by about one million tourists from around the world.
