Cairo is the capital of today’s Islamic world and the largest city in Africa. Its population is about 16 million, which makes it one of the world’s most populist cities. In Cairo, you will encounter the world’s most ancient civilization, the only remaining monuments of the world's Seven Wonders, and priceless treasures which can be admired in its museums. Remnants of the past can be found in the old quarters and the picturesque markets, from which perfumed scents of the east are both mysterious and attractive. The imposing mosque and superb churches that are less ancient mark another stage in civilization and art.
Modern Cairo is very striking by its large open squares, its admirable Corniche, modern buildings and luxurious hotels. It is a charming city, rich in scenes of great variety. Cairo is unique in its ability of ancient traditions to mingle with modern lifestyles which forms the contemporary Egyptian culture.
