A vibrant metropolis with millions of inhabitants, the city of pyramids and a treasure trove full of antiquities: Cairo is one of the most fascinating destinations in the Arab world. The famous pyramids on the outskirts of Cairo are the oldest and the only preserved Wonder of the Ancient World, dating back more than 4,500 years. The Egyptian Museum provides a deep insight into the history of the Land of the Pharaohs. The Grand Egyptian Museum, not far from the pyramids and the Sphinx, opens in December and will house the world’s largest archaeological collection. The North African megacity on the Nile is a feast for the senses: the bustling markets, like Khan-al-Khalili, loud muezzin calls from hundreds of minarets, like from Muhammad Ali Mosque, and culinary diversity will leave lasting impressions.
