Egypt as a tourist destination

For those looking for a historical vacation, Egypt offers countless ancient temples located all
over the country, from the magnificent Great Pyramids of Giza to Karnak Temple in Luxor, to
the famed Step Pyramids of Saqqara.. Of course, theres much more to your historical tour
than just this. You should also visit the Greek and Roman ruins in Alexandria, the old Coptic
and Islamic monuments in Old Cairo, and the religious monasteries located along the Red
Sea Coast, including St. Catherines Monastery in the Sinai Peninsula.

Za one koji trae istorijski odmor, Egipat nudi veliki broj antikih hramova koji se nalaze irom
zemlje, od velianstvenih Velikih piramida u Gizi, preko hrama Karnak u Luksoru, do uvene
Doserove piramide u Sahari. Naravno, ima jo mnogo toga u vaoj istorijskoj turi. Jo treba da
posetite grke I rimske ruevine u Aleksandriji, stare koptske I islamske spomenike u Starom Kairu I
religijske manastire koji se nalaze duobale crvenog mora , ukljuujui i manastir svete Katarine na
poluostrvu Sinaj.

Of course, no visit to Egypt would be complete without a visit to any of the countless
museums in Egypt. For sure a visit to the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities is a must see when
in Cairo because where else will you have the chance to come face to face with the mummy
of Ramses III and the Golden Mask of King Tut.

Naravno, nijedna poseta Egiptu ne bi bila kompletna bez posete jednom od bezbrojnih muzeja u
Egiptu. Svakako, poseta Muzeju egipatskih antikviteta je obavezna kada ste u Kairu, jer nigde
drugde neete imati ansu da se naete licem u lice sa mumijom Ramzesa III i zlatnom maskom
kralja Tuta.

But an Egyptian vacation doesnt just offer history, it offers adventure as well! While on
vacation in Egypt, you can dive and snorkel off the coast of the Red Sea, camp out under the
stars in the desert, or even go sandboarding in the Great Sand Sea. So many adventure
activities are offered; you can even visit an oasis and tell your friends that you were saved by
an oasis in the middle of the desert! With the option for adventure in the rugged desert
outdoors and the opportunity to come up close and personal with some incredible and
unique marine creatures in the Red Sea, adventure is just around any corner.

Ali, odmor u Egiptu ne nudi vam samo istoriju, ve i avanturu! Dok ste na odmoru u Egiptu, moete

priati svojim prijateljima kako vas je oaza spasila u sred pustinje! Kako postoji opcija da se doivi

If youre more interested in a relaxing Egypt vacation, there are plenty of options available as
well. While many only think of the desert when they think of Egypt, the country offers some
spectacular coastline as well. With the Mediterranean Coast to the north, and the Red Sea to
the east, there are thousands of miles of coastline, and hundreds of beaches to choose from
and visit. Relaxing at any of these beaches offers you a very calming and soothing
experience. The Red Sea especially offers great snorkeling and swimming locations.
