Pyramids of Giza

The Pyramids of Giza are the only remaining of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and are one of the most famous structures in the world. They are about 15 kilometers from downtown Cairo, the capital of Egypt, right on the outskirts of Giza, a suburb of Cairo with 2 million inhabitants. The distance from the city center of Giza is around 8 kilometers. The whole area is on the western side of the Nile, but at some distance from it, which is why it is in the desert.

In addition to the three main pyramids, the Pyramid of Cheops, the Pyramid of Chephren and the Pyramid of Menkaure, the Pyramids of Gizeh also include the Great Sphinx of Gizeh, several other small side pyramids in which, for example, the wives of the pharaohs were buried, as well as workers' villages, temples and burial grounds.

The pyramids of Giza were built in the years 2620 to 2500 BC, which corresponds to the 4th dynasty. But even before that, in the 1st to 3rd dynasty, the approximately 3 square kilometer area of the pyramids of Gizeh and the Sphinx was used as the tomb of the pharaohs. However, it is unclear to what extent the tombs that were created at that time were destroyed during the construction of the pyramids.

The Egyptian Museum

The Egyptian Museum on the east bank of the Nile in Cairo was founded in 1857 by August Mariette and today includes around 150,000 exhibits from 4,500 years of Egyptian history. Although only a small part is accessible to visitors at all, the time available during a trip to Egypt is by far not enough to gain any insight, let alone an overview of the exhibits. It might even be difficult or even impossible for the uninitiated to comprehend and classify the diversity and development of architecture and art. The Sphinx of Giza

The Sphinx of Giza

The Sphinx Giza is the largest Egyptian sculpture. It was carved out of the limestone rock of the Giza Plateau and depicts a reclining lion with a human head and the so-called Nemes headscarf. The Sphinx was originally painted with reddish ocher and also had a goatee, which fell off in ancient times. Pieces of it are now in the British Museum in London.
