Egypt, one of the birthplaces of the world's four major civilizations, is no exaggeration to say that the country itself is a huge archaeological museum.

Ancient Egyptian relics with a long history of 5000 years, such as pyramids and sphinxes, can be found throughout the city. The unique culture of East, West and Africa is enough to catch tourists' footsteps.

Medieval atmosphere Cairo

Located on the banks of the flowing Nile, the Egyptian capital Cairo has a unique atmosphere that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The place where you can feel the atmosphere of Cairo is the Islamic Quarter of the Old Town. It used to be the center of Cairo and you can still feel the medieval atmosphere. Pyramids and Sphinx, which are considered world wonders, are located on a desert plateau about 15 km from Cairo.

The huge structure, which is believed to have been made by human hands, presents a mysterious atmosphere along with a deserted desert.

King Khufu's Pyramid is the world's largest building, with one side at the base of 230m and a height of 146.6m at the time it was built, but now the top part has collapsed to 138.5m and its volume is 2.6 million m3. The average weight of the stones that make up the pyramid is estimated to be 2.5 tons per piece, and the number of stones used is said to be 2.3 million and 2.68 million. King Capra's pyramid is located in the center of the Great Pyramid. It seems to be smaller than the pyramid of King Kufu, but it is now the tallest at 143m. It is also built on a higher level than that of King Khufu, so it looks larger depending on the direction you are looking at. It is the best preserved among the pyramids, and some of the surface cremation stones remain, so the exterior is the most beautiful.

Khan elkal Lily traditional markets to Ottoman conquest of Egypt in the early 16th century. It served as a center for commerce and trade. It is said that there were about 12,000 stores around Can El Khalilly. However, as the ocean trade route around the Cape of Good Hope in Africa became active and the Ottoman-Turkish Empire developed, the commercial center moved to Istanbul and the market gradually declined.

The temple was built by Ptolemy III in 237 B.C. and was completed 180 years later by Ptolemy XII. Horus, other gods, and a pharaoh in the form of defeating enemies appear at the entrance gate. Above the gate is a disk of the sun, which is surrounded by snakes on both sides. In the sanctuary inside the temple, a golden Horus statue is hidden inside and a shrine made of polished stone remains. The temple has an extensive library and perfumery.

Luxor , located in the middle of the Nile River, is the capital of the ancient Egyptian God Kingdom era, and is called an open-air museum because of its huge temples and representative historical sites. Bordered by the Nile River, the East is called the Land of Life with the Karnak Temple and the Luxor Temple, and the West is called the Land of the Dead with King's Tombs, and many ruins are located in their old days.

Karnak, with a history of 4000 years, is the largest temple in Egypt and the most impressive of the numerous pharaoh period sites. During the Middle Dynasty, the god Amunra was born through the combination of the god Amun, the god of Thebe, and Ra, the god of the sun.
