Egyptian Culture, People and Society ‘Nowhere are there so many marvelous things, nor in the world besides are to be seen so many things of unspeakable greatness’-Herodotus. With a unique cultural blend mixing between Africa, Arabia, Greeks, Romans and our very own legacy of ancient civilizations of the Pharaohs, Coptic Christianity and Islam. Egypt Is the embodiment of art and culture home to the world’s leading artists, politicians, scientists, intellectuals and Nobel laureates it is the leading country in the Arab world. Egypt has always been a unique and timeless experience that everyone needs to embark on. Home to the world’s most ancient wonder, it represents the perfect harmony between tradition and modernity that can be seen in all aspects of life around the country. As modern Egypt is an amalgam of these legacies. Modern skyscrapers, highways, a subway system, hotels, restaurants, clothing blend together with ancient advertising and western

pharaonic ruins, Islamic mosques, Coptic churches, Middle Eastern garb, bazaars and the odor of cattle in a unique mosaic of life in modern Egypt. The Egyptian people are humble, people that mirror the warmness and richness of the culture; known primarily for their chivalry, hospitality and sense of humor. And all of that is what makes the Egyptian culture that spectacular. “There is nothing new in Egypt, Egyptians are making history as usual” Italy’s Prime Minister. And on the 25th of January 2011 the Egyptians made history again, as they decided to go out and get their country back. After decades of the autocracy and corruption the Egyptians peacefully went to the streets to demand their rights and their country in Tahrir square; 18 days later with the watchful eyes of the world, they managed to bring down the ruling system and rewrite Egypt’s destiny. “
