Libyans are mostly muslims, you will find mosques for sure.
No Jewish or Hindhu.
Few Christians.
Few people speaks English there.

Hey IDStudent,

Expats moving to Libya often have to adapt when it comes to relgious practices. Libya is predominantly Muslim as Sameh said. There are a few churches but not as much relgious diversity as you'd find elsewhere.

Read our culture shock in Libya page to get an understanding of more the difficultires faced by new arrivals in the country.

Good Luck
