Coptic Monuments

 
Coptic Monuments Alexandria was once one of the major seats of the Roman Empire and many beautiful Coptic monuments record the great triumphs of those years of glory. Virgin's Tree
Many places are named in honour of the Virgin Mary, but the Virgin's tree is one of very few to have been visited by Mary herself with young Jesus by her side. They're thought to have taken shelter beneath the tree's bowed branches, refreshing themselves from the same spring that waters its old roots. Saint Catherine's Monastery
It was at the top of Mt Sinai that Moses received the ten commandments from God. At its base, besides what is rumoured to be the burning bush of biblical fame, is the Greek Orthodox Monastery of Sain...
 

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...
 

Beaches of Egypt

 
Beaches of Egypt The Mediterranean offers stunning azure water and you'll find Egyptians flocking to its beautiful beaches. Along the coastline between Sallum and Alexandria you can still find quiet places such as Sidi Abdel Rahman, an unspoilt beauty spot west of El Alamein. If diving in turquoise waters and discovering exotic creatures of the deep is your goal, choose the Red Sea Coast. It stretches for more than 800 km from Suez in the north to the village of Shalatein, near the border of Sudan. Mediterranean Beaches
Since the 1990s, the coast west of Alexandria has offered a wide range of seaside resorts. Tourist complexes include sports and shopping centres and, in some cases, marinas. In summer the climate...
 

Buto

 
Buto Buto was the later, Greek name for an ancient city located 95 km east of Alexandria in the Nile Delta of Egypt. The city stood on the Sebennytic arm of the Nile, near its mouth, and on the southern shore of the Butic Lake. Buto originally was two cities, Pe and Dep, which merged into one city that the Egyptians named Per-Wadjet. It is an important archaeological site in Kafr el-Sheikh governorate in the Nile delta. ==== BUTO - ATTRACTION The site consists of three mounds, covering two cities and a temple complex. The older remains show that Buto was inhabited for at least 500 years during the Predynastic time, which ended 3100 BC, and it seems then to have been the capital of northern Egypt. The number of touris...
 

Dokki

 
Dokki Dokki is a district of greater Giza, Egypt. Dokki is situated on the Western bank of the Nile, directly across from Downtown Cairo. ==== DOKKI - ATTRACTION Many Cairene landmarks are located in Dokki, including Cairo University, Giza Zoological Garden, the German school DEO. There is not much sight seeing there, but it is a nice area for those who would like to rent an apartment. Its popular with Arab tourists because of the budget accommodation available....
 

Hurghada City

 
Hurghada City Hurghada was founded in the early 20th century, and until a few years ago, remained a small fishing village. But today, it has gone on to become the foremost tourist resort of the Red Sea coast and an international center for aquatic sports. If it takes place in or on the water you can do it here: windsurfing, sailing, deep-sea fishing, swimming, but, above all, snorkeling and diving. The unique underwater gardens offshore are some of the finest in the world, justifiably famous amongst divers. The warm waters here are ideal for many varieties of rare fish and coral reefs, which may also be observed through glass bottom boats. This area has many fine accommodations, usually offering warm and efficient service. Restaura...
 

Al Giza Pyramids

 
Al Giza Pyramids Guarded by the familiar lone lion-bodied Sphinx are the three Great Pyramids of Giza. Over 4,000 years ago, the mummified bodies of Kings Cheops, Kefren and Mykerinos were ferried down the Nile to be buried and prepared for the journey to the afterlife within these massive monuments. The largest, oldest and finest of all three is Cheop's Pyramid, simply known as the Great Pyramid. It was the tallest structure in the world until the end of the nineteenth century (145 meters). But Kefren's Pyramid, Cheop's son and successor, makes a bigger first impression. On higher ground with its limestone cap still intact, it looks loftier even though it's 4 meters shorter. Giza, Pyramid, Tomb The smallest of the three, Myker...
 

Dahshur Pyramids

 
Dahshur Pyramids There were originally 11 pyramids at Dahshur, although only the two Old Kingdom Pyramids, the Bent and the Red Pyramid, remain intact. Pharaoh Sneferu, father of Khufu and founder of the 4th Dynasty, built Egypt's first real pyramid, the Red Pyramid, here. It is a quiet place where you will be able to enjoy the monuments in peace.

The Ramesseum

 
The Ramesseum The funerary temple of Ramesses II has lost much of its splendor over the centuries. Poets sang of its glory in antiquity but the dream of self-glorification of Ramesses II, already responsible for the construction of Abu Simbel, has not survived the passing of time or successive pillaging. The broken columns and thorny trees create a romantic and moving sight particularly at sunrise when the first rays brush the gigantic statue of Ramesses II lying in pieces in the ground. Calculations indicate that the statue must have measured at least 17 m high and weighed around one thousand tons. Source:http://www.egypt.travel/index.php...
 

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 ...
