I wish for all of you one day to visit this city, Cairo which considered to be the largest citiy all over the world, it history dates back to 5000 B.C. I think it is to difficult to write about Cairo, so excuse me cause i'll write not one report but alot


Map of Cairo
Map of Cairo
Egypt was the first state to establish a system of administration and a capital with administrative and religious centers. King Narmer, the unifier of upper and lower Egypt 3200 B.C., had chosen Memphis (22 km south from modern Cairo) to be a capital of Egypt. Then the capital city of Egypt has changed throughout the history from Ahnasia, Thebes ( Luxor ) to Alexandria. But when the Islam was introduced to Egypt, Amer Ebn Alas founded Alfustat in 641 A.D. and had chosen to be a capital of Egypt. Gohar Al Sikkily founded Cairo in 969 A.D. beside Alfustat. Cairo now is the capital city of Egypt, with 20 million inhabitants, and average population density is 50.000 inhabitants/ km².
