Country Overview

Welcome to Egypt

Egypt officially known as the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula. It is a Mediterranean country and is bordered by the Gaza Strip to the northeast, the Gulf of Aqaba to the east, the Red Sea to the east and south, Sudan to the south and Libya to the west. Egypt has one of the longest histories of any modern country, arising in the tenth millennium BCE as one of the world's first states. Considered a cradle of civilization, Ancient Egypt experienced some of the earliest developments of writing, agriculture, urbanization, organized religion and central government in history. Iconic monuments such as the Giza Necropolis and its Great Sphinx, as well the ruins of Memphis, Thebes, Karnack, and the Valley of the Kings, reflect this legacy and remain a significant focus of archaeological study and popular interest worldwide. Egypt's rich cultural heritage is an integral part of its national identity, having sustained and at times assimilated various foreign influences, including Greek, Persian, Roman, Arab, Ottoman, and European.


With over 100 million inhabitants, Egypt is the most populous country in North Africa and the Arab World, the great majority of its people live near the banks of the Nile River, an area of about 40,000 square kilometers.
