Finest Things To Do In Cairo, Egypt

The metropolis is marked by the traditions and influences of the East and the West, each the traditional and the fashionable. However, Cairo also displays Egypt’s rising poverty, and it struggles to deal with problems brought on by massive population growth, urban sprawl, and deteriorating infrastructure and public services. Greater Cairo is unfold throughout three of Egypt’s administrative governorates. The northeastern part is recognized as Kaliobia Governorate, whereas the west financial institution is a part of the governorate of Giza, and the japanese elements and southeastern elements are other governorates often identified as Cairo governorate.



Būlāq, an island until 1340 and the city’s main port by 1560, ultimately grew to become an industrial district in the early nineteenth century. In addition to its poorer neighbourhoods, the district is a centre for workshops, gentle trade, and trade colleges.

Architecture nearer to the Nile is marked by a mix of styles, though concrete constructions with balconies and glass curtain walls predominate there. Cairo is fan-shaped, narrowest within the south, where the river valley is wedged between desert escarpments, and widest in the north, where the valley blends into the delta. Over the centuries the city expanded westward, as a receding river channel left land flood-free. In response to heightened demand, nevertheless, town also has been elongated to the north and south and has developed an expanding annex on the Nile’s western shore.

While historic temples and complicated tombs await farther south in Luxor and Aswan, here’s why you need to pause in Cairo earlier than your journey onward.

Sailing down the identical river Cleopatra did so many centuries in the past is an actual deal with. The charm of Cairo derives significantly from its mishmash of religions and cultures – and this museum stands testimony to that. Founded in 1908, it
