Cairo is the largest city of Egypt and one of the largest cities of the world. Though on the area it concedes to Moscow twice, but by in a number of the population it surpasses Moscow almost twice. 18 million inhabitants in comparison with 10 million in Moscow have seemed impressing.
The city is located mainly on the right east bank of the Nile near to the beginning of its delta. From two sides the city is clamped by deserted plateaus - Muqattam from the east and Giza from the West. Therefore the city strongly extends along the river. In the city there are two islands: Gezira and Roda.
In comparison with clean and well-groomed European cities Cairo makes depressing impression. However owing to the sights it certainly deserves visiting by any person who is interested in history and culture of Egypt.
