Now, let us introduce to you a brief description about each of the cities of Egypt:
Cairo, Egypt, the Triumphant City, known officially as al-Q?hirah is one of the world’s largest urban areas and offers many sites to see. It is the administrative capital of Egypt and, close by, is almost every Egypt Pyramid, But there are also ancient temples, tombs, Christian churches, magnificent Muslim monuments, and of course, the Egyptian Antiquities Museum all either within or nearby the city. Nobody really knows how many people live in Cairo, but estimates put it at about 16 million, and the city’s many squatter camps and slums alone accommodate around 5 million people. Housing shortages are terrible and the traffic is appalling, but the government has begun a campaign to ease these pressures, opening an underground metro system and constructing satellite suburbs. An ancient tell of 1001 Nights, “He who have not seen Cairo, have not seen the world” Islamic Cairo (which is no more Islamic than the rest of the city) is the old medieval quarter, and stepping into its neighborhoods is like moving back six or seven centuries. This is the most densely populated area of Egypt, and probably the whole Middle East.
Alexandria lays north-west of the Nile delta and stretches along a narrow land strip between the Mediterranean Sea and Lake Mariut (Mareotis). It is linked to Cairo by two major highways and a railroad line. It is one of the most notable summer resorts in the Middle East, for, in addition to its temperate winters, its beaches, with white sands and magnificent scenery, stretch for 140 km along the Mediterranean Sea, from Abu Qir, in the east to Al-Alamein and Sidi Abdul Rahman, in the west. The mighty Macedonian Alexander the Great came to Egypt in 331 BC after conquering Greece and selected a small fishing village on the Mediterranean coast to establish his new capital, Alexandria. The city is oriented around Midan Ramla and Midan Saad Zaghoul, the large square that runs down to the waterfront. Alexandria once had a great library that contained more than 500,000 volumes, and at its peak the city was a great repository of science, philosophy and intellectual thought and learning. Once you are in Alexandria you got to see the Catacomb which holds more than 300 corpses, The Greco-Roman Museum contains relics that date back to the 3rd century BC, The only Roman Amphitheatre in Egypt was rediscovered in 1964, Pompey’s Pillar which was built for the emperor in AD 297 and the great New Alexandria library.
Located at the foot of Mount Moses, St. Catherine’s Monastery, was constructed by order of the Emperor Justinian between 527 and 565. Is built around what is thought to be Moses’ Burning Bush, which has a chapel built atop it. It is a spectacular natural setting for priceless works of art, including Arab mosaics, Greek and Russian icons, Western oil paintings, paintings on wax, fine sacerdotal ornaments, marbles, enamels, chalices, reliquaries, including one donated by Czar Alexander II in the 19th century, and another by Empress Catherine of Russia in the 17th century. But of perhaps even greater significance is that it is the second largest collection of illuminated manuscripts (The Vatican has the largest). The collection consists of some 3,500 volumes in Greek, Coptic, Arabic, Armenian, Hebrew, Slavic, Syriac, Georgian and other languages. Around the year 1850, the fourth century Codex Sinaiticus, which is now in the British Museum in London, was discovered here. The Monastery even has a small 10th or 11th century mosque which was probably built to appease the Islamic authorities of the time. There is also a small chapel (the Chapel of St. Triphone, also known as the Skull House) which houses the skulls of deceased monks.
Taba, the border town between Egypt and Israel is well known for its picturesque bays and coves. Recently, Taba has experienced a growth spurt on its coastline and is now home to many leading hotel chains.
One of Taba’s main attractions, Pharaoh’s Island, is simply breathtaking. The island, surrounded by outstanding blue and turquoise water was once a Phoenician port. Later occupied by Crusaders and then taken under control by Sultan Salah El Din. The island and the castle remain intact. The reef around the island is popular with snorklers and divers alike. Taba is one of many exciting holiday destinations for package holidays to Egypt and the Red Sea.
Located between Sharm el Sheikh and Nuweiba, Dahab is a favorite of divers and those who enjoy the backdrop of Bedouin culture in a relaxed, down-to-earth atmosphere. Bedouin-style restaurants line the shore, along with dive centers and beaches, where a wide variety of water and land activities are available. The coral peninsula that makes up the unique geography of Dahab is renowned for its popular dive sites: Blue Hole, Canyon and Lighthouse. Experienced divers return year after year to witness the wonders of their depths, while novice divers marvel at the beauty of even the shallowest of reefs. Dahab is a choice location for windsurfing. Blowing mostly north to south, the winds not only cool off the hot summers, but also make Dahab a windsurfer’s paradise. A perfect departure point for a variety of desert trips, Dahab is home to a large population of Bedouin that prosper from showing off the awe-inspiring sights of their Sinai desert.
Dahab is one of many exciting holiday destinations for package holidays to Egypt and the Red Sea.
Luxor has often been called the worlds greatest open air museum, as indeed it is and much more. The number and preservation of the monuments in the Luxor area are unparalleled anywhere else in the world that know of. Actually, what most people think of as Luxor is really three different areas, consisting of the City of Luxor on the East side of the Nile, the town of Karnak just north of Luxor and Thebes,The west bank across the Nile from Luxor. Built on the site of the ancient city of Thebes, Luxor is one of Egypt’s prime tourist destinations. People have been visiting the magnificent monuments of Luxor, Karnak, Hatshepsut and Ramses III for thousands of years. Feluccas and old barges shuffle along the Nile between the luxury hotel ships of the Hilton and Sheraton cruising to and fro Cairo and Aswan. Luxor Temple was built by Pharaoh Amenhotep III (1390-1352 BC) on the site of an older temple built by Hatshepsut and added to by Tutankhamun, Ramses II, Nectanebo, Alexander the Great and various Romans. Excavation work has been under way since 1885. The Temples of Karnak is a spectacular series of monuments that were the main place of worship in Theban times. They can be divided into the Amun Temple Enclosure, which is the largest; the Mut Temple Enclosure on the south side; and the Montu Temple Enclosure. The lonely statues of the Colossi of Memnon are the first things most people see when they arrive on the West bank, though the Valley of the Kings, including the spectacular tombs of Nefertari and Tutankhamun, are the big attraction. Luxor is accessible from Cairo by buses or trains, which run every day.
Aswan, Egypt’s southernmost city has long been the country’s gateway to Africa. The prosperous market city straddles the crossroads of the ancient caravan routes, at the ‘other’ end of the Nile not far above the Tropic of Cancer. In ancient times it was a garrison town known as Swenet (meaning ‘Trade’), and it was also important to the early Coptic Christians. The main town and temple area of Swenet were located on Elephantine Island in the middle of Nile (the island was known then as Yebu, and later renamed by the Greeks). The temples and ruins here are not nearly as well preserved and impressive as that elsewhere in the country, but there are other good reasons to visit. If you’re not ‘tombed out’, a visit to the Tombs of the Nobles is worthwhile, and a highlight is the Nubian Museum, showcasing history, art and Nubian culture from the prehistoric to the present. The Nile is glorious here as it makes its way down from massive High Dam and Lake Nasser – watching the feluccas glide by as the sun sets over the Nile is an experience you’re unlikely to forget.
