Oran The Host City
Oran (Arabic: وهران‎, Wahrān) is a major city on the northwestern Mediterranean coast of Algeria, and the second largest city of the country. It is closely associated with its neighboring city, Aïn Témouchent. Located near the north-western corner of Algeria, 432 kilometres (268 miles) from the capital Algiers, it is a major port and the commercial, industrial, and educational centre of western Algeria.  
It is the capital of the Oran Province (wilaya). The city has a population of 759,645 (2008[2]), while the metropolitan area has a population of approximately 1,500,000,[3] making it the second largest city in Algeria. 
It seems that the name "Wahran" (Oran in Arabic) is derived from the Berber word "uharu" (lion"). The legend says that at the time (in 900), there were still lions in the area. The last two lions were hunted mountain near Oran and elsewhere is called "mountain lions".
