Cairo is the capital city of Egypt and has a population of around 22 million, spread across an area of 3085 sq km making it the largest city in Egypt. The city is high on noise, traffic and pollution and is lightened up by the exceptional humor of its residents. The most famous landmark of the city is the Great Pyramid of Giza built around 2500 BC. This city might rack your brains and the smog and snot might hound you, but if you look the dirt and pollution in the past , you will love the city that is rightly called 'Umm Ad Dunya', meaning 'the Mother of the World'.
