Splendid mosques, glorious avenues, 19th-century palaces and the pyramids of Giza, awaits you in Cairo. A city inhabited by more than 22 million people may feel overwhelming, but the residents make up for it with their charm and humour. Cairo has centuries of character and it reflects in every corner of the city. Egyptians call it 'Umm ad-Dunya', the Mother of the World, and this city loves exactly like a mother – unconditionally. The dusty streets and polluted air may be underwhelming but the vibe of this city makes up for almost all its drawbacks. Where else can you see an ancient wonder of the world, still standing tall and proud, but in Cairo?
