Cairo is the capital of Egypt and the largest city in the Arab world. The Greater Cairo metropolitan area is the largest urban agglomeration in Africa, the largest in the Arab world and the Middle East, and the sixth-largest in the world by population.

Cairo is associated with ancient Egypt, as the Giza pyramid complex and the ancient cities of Memphis and Heliopolis are located in its geographical area. Located near the Nile Delta, the city first developed as Fustat, a settlement founded after the Muslim conquest of Egypt in 640 next to an existing ancient fortress. Under the Fatimid dynasty a new city, al-Qāhirah, was founded nearby in 969.

It later superseded Fustat as the main urban centre during the Ayyubid and Mamluk periods (12th –16th centuries).

Cairo has long been a centre of the region’s political and cultural life, and is titled “the city of a thousand minarets” for its preponderance of Islamic architecture.

Cairo’s historic centre was awarded World Heritage Site-status in 1979.

There’s a lot of tourist attractions in Cairo like Pyramids and Sphinx, Egyptian Museum, Museum of Islamic Art, Khan Al Khalili, Citadel, Manial Palace and Cairo Tower.
