As the capital of Egypt and one of the largest cities in the world, Cairo is a hugely important cultural and political centre which attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. With more than 16 million people living in the city, it is densely populated and is famed for its rich history and cultural identity. Situation on the Nile River, Cairo encompasses everything that Egypt has to offer and is one of the great symbols of that part of the world. It has gripped its history tightly and refuses to allow the modern world to overrun the glories of its past, instead opting to seamlessly integrate aspects of modern life into this vast city. There are very few cities in the world which can boast such an incredible history, with Cairo's roots dating back thousands of years, and you simply won't find anywhere else in the world which is such a glorious example of Middle Eastern culture.
Due to its size, Cairo can be somewhat daunting to first-time visitors, but once you begin to understand the way the city works and you start to see what all the fuss is about, the hustle and bustle of the city will quickly be forgotten (if not embraced). With several huge districts, each with their own character and unique features, Cairo is truly a city that needs to be seen to be believed.
