For culturally interested tourists Egypt is to be recommended without hesitation, one can discover thousands of years old cultural monuments in Egypt.

Among other things one finds in Egypt the last preserved of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World, the Pyramids of Giza. This complex is worth a visit during a trip to Egypt.

Largest pyramid is the world-famous Cheopspyramide and also the Sphinx, a figure with lion body and human face, is visited again and again gladly.

To discover as many of the sights of the country as possible, a cruise on the Nile, the largest river in the country, is worthwhile. Without this a life in Egypt would hardly be possible.

During such a cruise, one gets to know such impressive buildings as the Valley of the Kings, the temples of Abu Simbel or the Aswan dam. The classic Nile cruise leads from Luxor to Aswan and lasts seven days.

But Egypt is also perfect for bathing holidaymakers. The beaches of the Red Sea are perfect for a bathing holiday and divers also get their money's worth here. Hurghada is one of the most popular tourist centres on the Red Sea with a large number of hotels.

In strong contrast to the historical places of Egypt stand the pulsating metropolises of the country, above all the city Cairo. This city is a city of contrasts and combines Arabic with modern Western cultures. One of the country's most important port cities is Alexandria; many visitors find this city even more exciting than Cairo.
