EGYPT SAYS "YOU ARE WELCOME"




EGYPT :

..The first word had the meaning of civilization.The land where the human knew for
the first time what does it mean the word "nation", and the word "counrty".
Here I am going to show to you a part of the geography and the history of egypt,
even it is so hard,but I will try to do my best. Now first of all lets start know some
information about egypt, and first thing
we should see is the map of egypt.


MAP OF EGYPT :




 
From the map we see it up, we can notice some things about EGYPT:
First ..EGYPT has a shape like a square, also we can see that at the north and east side of
it there are two big seas,
At the north we will find the "MEDITERRANEAN SEA" , and to the east side the
"RED SEA".
The area of egypt is around 1000,000 sq km, most of that area is desert..
There are 2 deserts:
To the east side , the eastern desert or in arabic " ALSAHARA ALSHARQIYA ",
and it is located between the "RED SEA" and the river "NILE", and to the west side the
western desert or in arabic"ALSAHARA ALGHARBYA", its located between the
 "NILE" and the western limits between EGYPT & LIBYA .
In the middel we will find the river "NILE" cut the country  verticaly coming from south,
 running to the north, divided near cairo in two branches: the right one ends at city called
"DOMIAT", the left one ends at city called  "RASHIED".

COASTS OF EGYPT :

As we can see in the map , there are so long coasts in egypt, to the north and to the east.
The long of all the coasts in egypt is around 2,900 km.
First, lets see the north coast:
There are some cities on the "MEDITERRANEAN", the most famous is

ALEXANDRIA :


                                                              MAP OF THE CITY





ALEXANDRIA is one of the most old cities in egypt, which kept her name
through thousands of years.
It is the first city all over the word had that name, as it had been made by the greek leader
"ALEXANDER THE GREAT" around the year  331 BC.
Now adays "ALEXANDRIA" is the second largest city in EGYPT, and the most important
seaport in EGYPT, also is an important tourist resort.
Now lets see some pictures for the most famous places in "ALEXANDRIA" :








LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA















EL MONTAZAH PALACE
IN ELMONTAZAH GARDEN















SAN STEFANO GRAND PLAZZA
















STANLEY BRIDGE














QAIETBAY CASTEL










As we see in the pictures up, these are some of the most famous places you should
visit if you go to "ALEXANDRIA".
Now lets see some pictures for some other places on the north coast of EGYPT:









MARSA-MATROOH is another
city on the north coast,and this
is one of the beaches of that city.












This is another beach in the
same city MARSA-MATROOH
It is called "AGIBA" beach.












Another beach in another city
It is called
"SIDI-ABD ELRHMAN" beach.








These were some examples for the most famous places on the north coast of EGYPT.

Now lets start see about the east coasts:
There are so many beatiful cities on the coast of the "RED SEA"..most of them exist in
"SINAI" peninsula .. Cities like "SHARM-ELSHEKH"

SHARM-EL SHEKH :

It is one of the most beatiful cities  in EGYPT, The nature of this city is so special,
like a meeting between a so rare and beatiful mountain with so pure and clear water of
the RED SEA,





AS we see in the picture, the
beauty of the nature at that city.
Also the city consider to be one of the most beatiful places for diving, and marine
sports. Thats because of the rich marine life the city has.



Here we can see a part of
the marine life in SHARM-
EL SHEKH.

                                     Marine Life In RED SEA at SHARM-ELSHEKH

                                  

As we saw in the upper pictures, so beatiful coasts, beaches and mountains, which make
us fell totaly excited about the nature and all its elements.
Now after we took some ideas about the coasts of EGYPT and the cities on it , let us start
to speak about some other parts of EGYPT.
Let us start with the capital..Let us go to "CAIRO

CAIRO :

                                                     MAP OF THE CITY


                                            MAP OF METRO LINES IN CAIRO





CAIRO..is the biggest city in EGYPT, and also is the most crowded city in it. It is enough
for us to know that, the number of people who live in cairo is more than 10 million person,
plus another 10 million enter the city every day just to make some works, or finish some
papers..!
Now I think we can imagine how much crowded it is. Let us see now about the things
charactrize cairo. The first thing we will notice is that cairo is so different than any other
city in the world, thats because its a city full with all the styles u can imagine
Pharos style, Arabian islamic style, Turkish style, Eroupian style, and even in some parts
American style.
Now lets see some pictures for CAIRO...

Now after we saw some picture for cairo, lets take the train to south. Pharos
are waiting for us there, and we should not make them wait.

LUXOR :

                                                      MAP OF THE CITY







LUXOR is one of the most beatiful cities in EGYPT, and the most one has that magical
atmospher.; From the first moment you put your foot there, you gonna feel as you get
back by the time machien to the time of the pharos dynasty.
LUXOR seems to be like a big museum, full with thousand and thousand of
monuments. LUXOR seems to be a big treasuer which is not yet discovered.
LUXOR had a special importance for EGYPT since the time of pharos and till
now. It  had been  for hundreds of years the capital of EGYPT in the pharos
time. And had the name TEEBA.
The arabian gave it the name  LUXOR which it has till now, thats because when  the
entered  EGYPT and arrived to LUXOR, they found it full with huge buildings and
they thought this big buildings are palaces, so they named it LUXOR  or as we
say in arabic AL-AXOR which mean in arabic language the palaces .
Now lets see some of the magnificent places in LUXOR:

Now after we saw small part of LUXOR,  lets go to another beatiful city.
Lets go to ASWAN.

ASWAN:

                                                           MAP OF THE CITY







It's seems to be the sister of LUXOR..ASWAN also has a big part of the pharos
history , including the temples,the statues,tombs, but it's also has a part of our
modern history, THE HIGH DAM which is one of the most important projects in the
egyptian history.

the land of gold..Let's go to NUBIA.

NUBIA :

It's an area along the river NILE at the south of EGYPT down of ASWAN.
NUBIA had a part in the egyptian history, for that as we saw also in LUXOR
and ASWAN...NUBIA also have enough much monuments.
Now lets see some pictures showing nubian culture and art.

I think we can see how much beauty in the nubian art.
Now after we saw about NUBIA, let's go to another place, this time I am going
to take you to the OASES OF EGYPT.

OASES :

In EGYPT there are seven OASES , and all of them exist in the western desert.
And now we are going to see them one by one.
First oasis we gonna speak about is.....

SIWA :

Is an oasis located between  QATTARA DEPRESSION and EGYPTIAN SAND
SEA . Its 560 km away from the capital CAIRO.
SIWA is a so nice place, and it is characterized by tourism and agriculture,
in agriculture  the most important are dates and olives, with a so high
quality.
