Cairo is a warm, tropical and beautiful city with innumerable attractions ranging from the Gigantic pyramids of Giza to the seemingly endless Nile. In addition, it houses numerous mosques, castles and churches and thus, came to be known as "the city of a thousand minarets". Boasting a rich history and society, Cairo perfectly blends modernity and olden culture.
Downtown Cairo can seem European and modern with squares and grand buildings, while Tahrir Square is the heart of Cairo. Islamic Cairo is a labyrinth of mosques, souks and breathtakingly beautiful Islamic monuments. The oldest neighbourhood is Coptic Cairo, the site of the Roman settlement of Babylon. It is famous for its historic Christian monuments.
