Welcome! In this photo gallery you'll find a selection of photos of Egypt taken during visits in 2001 and 2003. Egypt offers a unique combination of breathtaking sceneries, beaches and an impressive cultural heritage. This and its mild winter climate make Egypt a primary tourist destination in Northern Africa.
Egypt is famous for its ancient civilization and some of the world's most stunning ancient monuments, including the Gizeh pyramids, the Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings; the southern city of Luxor contains a particularly large number of ancient artifacts. In the extreme south of the country, close to the border to Sudan, lie the huge Nasser lake and the Abu Simbel temple. The western desert between the Nile and Lybia contains beautiful oases and stunning rock formations. In Cairo you will find the Egyptian national museum, which hosts items and artifacts spanning over 5000 years of history.
