Egypt was one of the world's first centres of civilisation and its history stretches back 6000 years. Such a heritage has left the country with an unsurpassed collection of relics of antiquity. whilst the Pyramids amongst the world's largest constructions are the most famous, Roman ruins, Byzantine churches and exquisitely decorated mosque testify to the various cultures that influenced the country over the millennia.
The 21st century is very much in evidence in comfortable hotels, busy casinos, lively nightclubs, comprehensive entertainment and the beach resort of Sharm El Sheikh on the red sea coast, famous for its diving and magnificent beaches.
