The Egyptian Museum: The Egyptian Museum is one of the most iconic depositories of Egyptian artifacts anywhere across the
globe. It features artifacts all the way back from the Pharaonic and Greco-Roman periods, including the celebrated
mummies of the renowned Egyptian kings and the Tut Ankh Amun treasures. The Citadel: This landmark is situated
on a spur of the Muqattam hills, the citadel dominates Cairo’s skyline and was the nerve center of the city
and Egypt for almost 700 years. Its construction was initiated in 1176 AD by Salahdin and completed by Mohamed
Ali. Mameluke sultans and Turkis governors later on made it their residence, building palaces and mosques within
the citadel walls. Facing the citadel is the Mosque of Sultan Hassan, built between 1356 and 1363 and perhaps
the most majestic monument of Arab architecture in Egypt.
