Heliopolis

 
Heliopolis Heliopolis was one of the most ancient cities of Egypt, and capital of the 13th Lower Egyptian nome. Its name also refers to an unrelated modern suburb of Cairo. Heliopolis suburb is full of recreational places, as it was initially established to offer its residents and visitors rest and relaxation. Heliopolis style is an architectural style specific to an Egyptian district in eastern Cairo. It is represented by a large ensemble of buildings spanning a wide area of land, and with its typical historic form-language that relates itself to several epochs, this style is a unique mixture of the Moorish, Arabic and European styles....
 

Museums in Egypt

 
Museums in Egypt The most enduring images of Egypt are its pharaonic treasures and its history, such as the relics and artefacts that live in Cairo's Egyptian Museum. But with a written history stretching back to 3,100 BC, at the time of Greek, Roman, Coptic and Islamic empires, every age and culture demands a museum of its own. The Egyptian Museum in Cairo
Sitting in the shadows of Cairo's modern town hall, the elegant coral-pink and copper-domed Egyptian Museum strikes a gentle pose. The restrained neo-classical French exterior is little preparation for the awesome array of treasures and ancient wonders that wait silently behind it's arched windows. Stepping through the entrance into the grand central atrium, monum...
 

The Coptic Church

 
The Coptic Church Most people associate Egypt with Islam today, but Christianity was actually the dominant religion between the fourth century AD and 641 AD, when Islam officially took over. St. Mark first preached Christianity in 50 AD, and Egypt was one of the first countries to adopt the still young faith. The Egyptian branch of Christianity is called the Coptic Church. Unlike other branches of Christianity, the Coptics believe that Christ was a wholly divine being and not God made flesh. One in every ten Egyptians is a Coptic today. The Coptic Church has its own Pope, and many ceremonies are still held in the ancient Coptic language. The Holy Family's Journey

Islamic Monuments in Egypt

 
Islamic Monuments in Egypt In 642 AD, the Byzantine Empire (the empire that introduced Christianity to Europe) was conquered by an army of Arabs and Egypt became part of an expanding Islamic Empire. Islam became the dominant religion and it's stayed that way ever since. Today, nine out of ten Egyptians are Muslim. A new capital was established at Fustat, the first Islamic city of Egypt (modern day Cairo). When the Fatimids invaded in 969 AD, they built a new seat of power and Fustat became al-Qahirah (the official name of the city of Cairo). Only traces of their legacy survive to this day. It was the legendary Saladin who finally vanquished the Fatimids in the twelfth century and he built the magnificent Citadel as we know it today. Regar...
 

Monuments of the Graeco Roman Era

 
Monuments of the Graeco Roman Era From Alexander the Great's grand entrance in 332 BC to Cleopatra's tragic exit when she committed suicide in 30 BC, the Greeks thrust Egypt centre stage during their three-and-a-half century reign under the Ptolomeic Dynasty. Not your average colonialists, the Ptolemaic rulers embraced the Egyptian culture and design, continuing the great works of their predecessors. Their greatest legacy was Alexandria, the glittering jewel of the ancient world. Its ancient library was a beacon of enlightenment and its now long gone Caesareum, an emblem of sophistication. When Cleopatra finally chose death, Octavian brought Egypt into the Roman fold. Egypt was relegated to being the Empire's bread basket. The Romans also built ...
