Find culture and history amidst Cairo’s chaos. Offering a mix of old and new, Egypt’s capital city appeals to every traveller in a different way. The ancient city is also a metropolitan area and the largest city in the Middle East. Called the City of the Thousand Minarets, Cairo has confidently accepted modernity without leaving its history behind. A tour of Egypt is incomplete without seeing the Egyptian Pyramids and the Great Sphinx at Giza. Situated on the banks of river Nile, over 100 pyramids can be found on-site, most of them built as tombs for pharaohs and family members of the Old Kingdom. Egypt’s famous landmark, the Sphinx, is a beautiful work of art. The limestone statue of a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head of a human is believed to represent pharaoh Khafra of the 4th dynasty. Another notable tourist spot is the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, a.k.a. Egyptian Museum, that displays old artifacts and the famous Tutankhamun collection. Besides the historic offerings, you can find the cheapest fruits, delicious baked goodies and a variety of local tea and coffee in Cairo.Share this destination
