Egypt, the mysterious Egypt has captivated many, while in others it has left an insatiable thirst to know this mysterious land, which was once inhabited by Pharaohs and Caesar and formed the basis of many biblical stories.A visit to this wonderful country is a must for historians and more, as it is one of Africa’s most popular travel destinations. The first image of Egypt that comes to mind is the pyramids, the sheer volume of which is truly remarkable. The country’s most popular attractions are the Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza – particularly the Pyramid of Cheops, the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still standing. Equally popular is the Nile River – the longest river in the world.The beauty along the Nile is amazing and a few days of travel on this river is a popular way to get to know this country. Thousands of tourists visit Egypt every year and many of them head to the Valley of the Kings, where Pharaohs and Queens of Egypt have been buried since the 11th century BC. The objects found here bear witness to the history of the entire country.
The Egyptian Museum of Antiquities is where visitors can admire the largest collection of Egyptian artefacts in the world – more than 120,000 finds, including 9 mummies on display in The Royal Mummy Room, as well as the solid gold mask of Tutankhamun.The Egyptian capital, Cairo, also known as “the city of a thousand minarets”, is a place of contrasts, full of ancient landmarks, ornate mosques and gleaming modern skyscrapers. The Cairo metropolitan area is the second largest in Africa, home to more than 20 million people – a sea of people that contributes to the city’s chaos and at the same time to its … heartbeat. Many visitors find the frenzy of Cairo exciting, but those with a sense of humor and patience are in for a treasure trove of experiences they can’t find anywhere else.
