Let’s visit Egypt, the most populous country in the Middle East with over 100 million citizens and is located in the northeastern region of Africa. Its capital, Cairo is a sprawling and enchanting medieval city that rests on the Nile River. It boasts well-preserved Islamic architecture that makes for the perfect backdrop while wandering the busy streets.

There is no lack of ancient artifacts to discover in Cairo. Its Egyptian Museum houses an impressive collection of antiquities that includes two rooms dedicated to the mummies of kings and other royal family members from the New Kingdom age.

One can’t visit Cairo without spending time at the iconic Great Pyramid of Giza, located on the outskirts of the city. This breathtaking piece of history is part of the Giza Necropolis and was one of the largest pyramids built in ancient Egypt. It is the oldest of the spectacular Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the only one to remain predominately intact.
