Cairo


City of Cairo

The capital of Egypt and the largest city in Africa, the name means "the victorious city"


The capital of Egypt and the largest city in Africa, the name means "the victorious city". It is located on both banks of the River Nile near the head of the river's delta in northern Egypt and has been settled for more than 6000 years, serving as the capital of numerous Egyptian civilizations.


This town holds more appeal for those who are keen on unspoilt nature. The beaches are free and the coral reef is a few flipper strokes from the beach. In addition, the site itself is very beautiful: on leaving the water, one can gaze on the spectacle of the mountains of Sinai dropping right down to the sea. It is almost as wonderful a sight as the fish below the water. Dahab, meaning gold in Arabic, is divided between the Bedouin village of Assalah to the north and the administrative and commercial centre to the south (the medina). The small hotels, Bedouin cafes and souk are spread around Assalah Bay, close to the ancient lighthouse, whilst the hotel chains are installed the length of a beach two kilometres to the south.


Cairo contains numerous religious and governmental structures. The ornate architecture of the Citadel, in eastern Cairo, enhances the city's skyline. Begun by Saladin in 1176 and modified and expanded by later sultans, the Citadel is famous for its Mosques, Museums, and fort; within the complex the Mohammad Ali Mosque (1830) is particularly notable, with its storied domes and twin minarets. The Coptic Church known as Al Mu'allaqa, located in Old Cairo, is believed to be the earliest known site of Christian worship in Egypt; the church was built in the 3rd century, though it has been almost entirely replaced through successive restorations. Old Cairo also contains the Ben Ezra synagogue, the central house of worship for Cairo's small Jewish population, and the distinctive and imposing gates of Cairo. Once part of a wall that encircled the city, these three gates are all that remain of the original eight. Among Cairo's modern buildings are the Cairo Tower, which stands at a height of 187 m (about 614 ft) and commands a view of the Pyramids and the Citadel.
