Syria Flower Exhibition

An annual flower exhibition returned to Damascus capital of Syria, eight years after being interrupted by war.

The exhibition attracted companies from not only Syria, but Japan, Bulgaria, Holland, Iran and Iraq to show their products, including house plants, horticultural plants, spices and plants for medical usage.

In addition, a book market, movie showings, drama performances and other cultural activities will be held during the exhibition.

The exhibition had been suspended for eight years out of security concerns.

The exhibition will last for a month and will be a breath of fresh air for Syrians.
