In the northeastern part of the African continent is the country of the pyramids – Egypt.
This beautiful sunny country is one of the most favorite tourist destinations. Every day it attracts more than one million fans of the hot sun from all over the world who dream of soaking in the atmosphere of the history of this ancient country. Prices and local quality of service (for the money) play a significant role in such a rush.
In general, Egypt is worth visiting just for the sake of the magnificent Red Sea. It is not only warm, but also alive. If you go snorkeling, you can see flocks of exotic colorful fish right off the coast, and if you also book an excursion to coral reefs, you will never forget such a swim!
Tours to Egypt are the most convenient for Russian tourists, firstly, because the flight to Hurghada or Sharm takes not so much time (up to 4.5 hours), and secondly, because Russians do not need a visa to Egypt, and, in thirdly, because many hotels in Egypt are adapted for guests from Russia.

The pyramids at Giza are the only of the seven wonders of the world that have survived to this day. The complex on the plateau has three large pyramids: Khufu (Cheops), Khafre, Minkaur. They are surrounded by smaller (in comparison with them) buildings – the pyramids of the queens and the pyramids of the valley. Also on the plateau at Giza are four large burials.
According to THESCIENCETUTOR, Egypt is a country that is rightfully proud of its sights. The temples of Egypt are widely known, especially the temples in Abu Simbel representing a collection of cave temples. The building material was sandy cliffs towering above the Nile. The complex was built by order of Ramses II.
Excursions in Egypt
It was in Egypt that one of the most powerful and mysterious civilizations arose, which has been of interest to scientists and travelers for many centuries. At a time when the Stone Age era still dominated Europe and America, Egyptian engineers built irrigation facilities along the Great Nile, and mathematicians calculated the square of the base and the angle of inclination of the Great Pyramids, the grandeur of which is amazing to this day. Wherever you go in the country, everywhere you will meet the priceless heritage of Ancient Egypt, which is famous for its seaside resorts – on the shores of the Mediterranean and Red Seas. Gorgeous Hurghada, Naama Bay, El Gouna, Sharm El Sheikh, Sharm el Maya and Safaga are ideal places for diving, windsurfing and other water sports. The coast of the Red Sea stretches for more than a thousand kilometers from north to south. Not a single river flows into this sea, so the water in it is crystal clear and very warm. Here are ideal conditions for the development of underwater flora and fauna – about one and a half thousand species of fish, up to 150 species of corals. Over the past decades, Egypt has gained fame as a real tourist Mecca. therefore the water in it is crystal clear and very warm.

What to do in Egypt
An interesting, funny article for those who are going on vacation to the pyramids. The original ways of entertainment in Egypt are described. Are you going to Egypt just for the sun, sand and water? Then the vacation is wasted. There are so many interesting things in this fabulous place that you can find a new activity for yourself every day.
Here is the rest plan:
1. Firstly, all kinds of excursions to the pyramids, to Mount Sinai. You can also scare colored fish with your original swimsuit.
2. Be sure to take a dip with scuba gear, pick corals and scare the unfortunate inhabitants of the underwater brethren again. You may even be able to admire the shark and take a tooth as a keepsake.
3. If a contact meeting with a shark does not make you very happy, you can travel on an aquascope. This is something like an underwater vessel, where there is transparent glass everywhere, and you are like in a capsule.
4. For fans of sensations “sharper”, there is a great opportunity to “tame the wind” and try yourself on windsurfing.
5. You can play catch-up with jeeps in the desert, just try not to get lost. Bedouins will not look for you for a long time.
6. If you meet them, they will gladly dig up water for you. Also, if you are lucky, you will be treated to bread baked in the sand.
7. Try yourself as an adventurer. Go in search of oases in the dead desert. The bizarre figures of weathered stones will impress you.
8. And, of course, a holiday for the body: belly dance lessons, aqua aerobics, clubs, volleyball and much more.
