Even though Cairo takes shape as a modern metropolis, its heart dates back to pre-Roman times as a trading center. From the very beginning Cairo's roots set it apart from other Egyptian cities. While the whole Egypt began with the pharaohs, Cairo for a long time was a small city at the eastern bank of Nile. The city would overtake and surpass the river's mainstream only by 1960s when efforts to develop the river's west bank were a success.
The leap was preceded by Amr's conquest followed by a millennium of foreign regency of the Fatimids, the Ayyubids, the Mamluks, the Ottomans and more than 150 years of French and British rule.
Held in captivity, Cairo saw its share of tragedy. But it thought a millennium forward when it made efforts to preserve the heritage of its foreign presence. Today it offers a comprehensive mix of various cultures and sites.
- Egyptian Museum preserves the world's richest collection of Egyptian artifacts
- Citadel, a beautiful castle by Salah Al-Din
- Ibn Tulun, the oldest mosque in Cairo
- Al-Azhar Park a newly opened gardens overlooking the Citadel
- Abdeen Palace, home to the last king of Egypt
