We offer an amazing trip to Cairo combined with a visit to Alexandria.
While in Cairo, it is worth going to the former Egyptian capital, Alexandria, about 220 km away. Each of these cities is different and has a completely different atmosphere and climate. In our opinion, it is worth to get to know both metropolises.
Cairo - the largest city of Africa (the entire Cairo agglomeration has more than 22 million inhabitants) is chaos, dust and noise. This is the first impression of anyone who comes to Cairo. However, at a closer look, the "mother of the world", Umm el-Dunia, as immodestly called al-Kahira ("Invincible") shows her oriental charm. Cairo is a multicultural melting pot, the administrative and commercial centre of the country, equally oriental, ancient and modern. It is a perfect mixture of various cities, villages and suburbs.
Alexandria is a port city that was founded in 332 by Alexander the Great. It reaches 25 km along the Mediterranean coast and is called the "pearl of the Mediterranean". The city has over 5 million inhabitants and is the second largest city in Egypt. Alexandria is as Mediterranean and cosmopolitan as Athens or Marseille. It has nineteenth-century architecture dating from the time of colonialism. The main attractions of the city come from various times: some of them from the period when it was the capital of the Greco-Roman Egypt; others, such as the delightful modern Bibliotheca Alexandrina, bring the city into the 21st century. Remnants from different periods can be seen underwater or in local museums. And although in Alexandria there are no ancient monuments from the time of the pharaohs, visiting this city is very interesting.
