هنا القاهرة… Here is Cairo!
Cairo Tower is one of the important landmarks of the city of Cairo. It has one of the best panoramic views of the city.
•• Location: Guezira island – Zamelek
••Shape: the building takes the shape of the famous Lotus flower (famous symbol from pharaonic Egypt & symbol of eternity and rebirth)
••Construction date: the construction was started on 1956 and it was inaugurated 5 years later (1961)
Height: 187 m (614 feet, around 16 floor 😊)
•• What is it exactly? : A tall tower with a circular observation deck at the top and a rotating restaurant with a view over Cairo.
••Best time to visit: 1 or 2 hours before sunset on weekends and official holidays where sky is clear 🙂 You know that you can see the PYRAMIDS from there when weather is clear! 😉
