About Egypt and Places to Visit
Mercury Jets provides private jet charter flights to and from Egypt.
Egypt is a large transcontinental state in North Africa on the Sinai Peninsula, with a population of about one hundred million. Egypt borders other major states, such as Sudan, Palestine, Libya; its territory is washed by the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea, both connected by the Suez Canal.
The centuries-old history of Egypt for tourists opens in every stone, ruins ancient temples, pyramids, religious buildings, monuments, and sphinxes. Almost every tourist traveling to Egypt assumes its duty to see the magnificent pyramids of Cheops, and the Sphinx, shrouded in many legends and myths.
The capital city of Cairo has many ancient monuments, such as the Citadel of Saladin, where you can see the entire city, the mosques of Mohammed Ali and Sultan Qalaun, the Aqueduct, and the largest oriental bazaar – Khan el-Khalili. In another large city of Luxor, there are two giant statues of Pharaoh – the Colossi of Memnon, the temple of Hatshepsut, the local museum, and the Alley of Sphinxes. Alexandria was founded during the Hellenistic rule by Alexander the Great himself; during its two-hundred-year history, here have survived quite a few monuments of Greek culture, including the Mausoleum of Alexander the Great, the Kayt Bay Fortress, the Maritime Museum, the Sultan’s throne, and even the remains of the columns of the most famous lighthouse in the country.
The local opera house throws concerts in the garden inside the fortress and the mosque of Abu el-Abbas, which impresses with its luxurious interior decoration. The Sinai Peninsula is famous for the Colorful Canyon, which is surrounded by hot springs. You can go with the crowds of pilgrims to the holy site, Mount Moses, the top of which, directly to the chapel of the Holy Trinity, lead 3750 steps. On the way back, you can visit St. Catherine’s Monastery, the oldest in the Christian world.
