Nablus - نابلس: Nablus

Posted by Carina El on June 20, 2007
Nablus is a former Canaanite city and it is one of the oldest cities in the world. The city lies along a narrow and fertile valley running roughly East-West between two mountains, Ebal and Jerzim. The entire Nablus district has about 205,400 inhabitants.

Nablus is known for its delicious Knafeh, olive oil, cheese and soap.

Nablus is currently undergoing a face-lift with new infrastructure being built in New Nablus.

* The Nabulsi accent of the Palestinian dialect replace the letter "M" with "N" when used at the end of the word so the word "kifkom" is pronounced "kifkon" or "salamo 3alaykom" becomes "salamo 3alaykon" in Nabulsi Palestinian. Moreover, the Nabulsi dialect uses "e" instead of "a" at the end of a word, as an example the word "heyha" (here it is) become "heyhee" in Nabulsi. This is an aspect of the Nabulsi dialect that non-Nabulsi Palestinians often find funny.

* The Roman name of Nablus is Flavia Neapolis.
