Over five thousand years ago, a civilisation developed along the river of Nile whose sights and remnants are still being admired by people from all over the world. Huge wonderful pyramids, stone temples, decorated tombs, larger-than-life statues of rulers, tall columns, obelisks, and other memorials can be seen in Egypt wherever you look.
Still, many sights are waiting to be freed from African sands and it’s not entirely clear how come Egyptian builders were able to create such large, beautiful buildings considering the technology they had at the time. Let’s take a walk together, see the most wonderful Egyptian sights, and learn what life in ancient Egypt looked like for pharaohs, officials, soldiers, or ordinary people.
