Founded in 969, today Cairo is the largest Arabic city in Northern Africa. Cairo is located in the middle of the desert, in the green valley where The River Neil expands becoming a delta. The old Cairo was built on the eastern bank of the great river, that's where it started to grow to the west. The eastern part of Cairo has been being built up over centuries in a chaotic way: in this part of the city you will find narrow ancient streets with overcrowded buildings and hundreds of old mosques. Western area was built in nineteenth century to resemble Paris: here you will be surprised by finding wide boulevards and colonial style buildings. On the island across the 6th October bridge you will find another beautiful area of the city – Zamalek quarter, the greenest and the wealthiest part of Cairo.
