More Info

Egypt is a country in North Africa bordering the Mediterranean Sea, as well as Libya, Sudan, and Israel. It is renowned for its ancient history, which includes notable points of history throughout the country. Egypt’s most recognized attractions include the pyramids and the Sphinx at Giza and the Valley of the Kings, rock cut tombs for the pharaohs, in Luxor. The Nile River, with a length of 6,853 kilometers, is one of the longest rivers in the world, and runs through the entire country. Its delta at the Mediterranean Sea has influenced the creation of Cairo, Alexandria, and other cities over the course of time, and the flood plains along the river have contributed to the development of communities and civilizations along the way. Its terrain is varied, from the Sahara to the mountainous Sinai Peninsula, and the Mediterranean and Red Seas have an abundance of wildlife and culture as well.
