Egypt enjoys a deep-rooted civilization which began when the ancient Egyptians established on the bank of the River Nile the first central state. Throughout centuries, the Egyptians interacted with other civilizations and peoples.

Yet, Egypt kept its cultural peculiarity which historians divide into Pharaonic Era which lasted for 3000 years, Greek Era which also lasted for 3000 years, Roman Era which interacted with Coptic Era after Christianity entered Egypt, and finally the Islamic Conquest of Egypt and the Ottoman Rule till the Modern Era launched by Mohamed Ali Pasha, the founder of modern Egypt.

Stretching along the banks of the River Nile, Cairo, the capital of Egypt, is a vast city where ancient traditions still hold up against the onslaught of modern life. A city of numerous districts, Cairo is a unique mix of medieval buildings and skyscrapers, bazaars and modern shopping malls, museums packed with ancient relics and stunning new bridges.

Cairo's main square is Midan Tahrir, at the centre of Cairo and home to the Egyptian Museum, with downtown Cairo, the busy commercial district, to the north-east bordered by the River Nile. Gezirah Island, connected to downtown by three bridges, houses the Cairo Tower and the Cairo Opera House. East of downtown is Islamic Cairo, the medieval heart of the city. Coptic Cairo, the seat of the Christian Coptic community, lies at the heart of Old Cairo, which is also home to Cairo's Jewish community. West of the Nile is Giza, about 18 kilometers south-west of the centre of Cairo, with the magnificent Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx.
