CAIRO – VIBRANT, FASCINATING, MYSTERIOUS

Majestically and powerful the Nile winds its way through Cairo, embracing two islands, Zamalek (Gezira) and Rode, and like a ribbon it ties together the beauty and mysteries of the city.

Cairo, also called “City of a Thousand Minarets, was founded in 969 A.D. and is today the largest city in the Arab World, with a population, including the greater metropolitan area, of about 20 million people.

And on a clear day,  you can see the Pyramids, and when you see them for the first time your heart will beat a little faster!  – They will forever connect Cairo to Ancient Egypt, and they are still today the main attraction for visitors coming to Egypt.

I could go on and on talking about Cairo, but as the saying goes a picture is worth a thousand words, therefore, I will now show you the city instead of talking about it.
