If someone wants to see the longest river in the world, ancient structures and real mummies, he should go Egypt. This country is situated in the north-east of Africa. Its favorable climate and beautiful sea scenery have turned the country into the world-class resort. Apart from that, people want to see the place where Ancient Egyptian civilization originated, the pyramids, the pharaohs’ tombs.
The Egyptian pyramids are an impressive monument to the power of ancient pharaohs as well as to the toil of numerous slaves. It took 20 years and one hundred thousand workers to build the grandest mausoleum in world history the Great Pyramid of Cheops (Khufu) at Giza.
It is the oldest of Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the only one survived to our days. Khufu’s Pyramid stands 140 meters tall and can be seen from a far distance. Inside it there are three burial chambers: the king’s chamber, the queen’s chamber and the underground chamber.
The Great Pyramid is surrounded by several smaller pyramids. They served as tombs for pharaohs and their close relatives.
The pyramid complex at Giza is guarded by the Sphinx carved from limestone. It has the head of a man and the body of a lion. The bottom part of the monument is buried under the sands.
