FAQ/INFORMATIONThe Pyramids and the Sphinx The three pyramids of Giza, Cheops, Chephren and Mycerinus are the last remaining of 'The 7 wonders of the ancient world!' 4500 years old and still standing majestically on a desert plateau. Cheops, the largest of them stands 140 m tall. It took 100,000 workers 30 years to build the pyramid that would serve as the burial tomb for the King. The outer casing has long since disappeared, used as it was by different rulers to build their own monuments. However, nothing can take away the sense of awe and wonder of this incredible symbol of the power of ancient Egypt. 'I remember seeing them for the first time on a bright moonlit night, all of a sudden we saw the shadow of something indescribably huge, rising from the sands above us… I felt so small,' wrote a traveler. The Sphinx, lying at the foot of the Pyramid of Chephren, was carved to have the body of a lion with a human head. No matter how familiar you think you are with the pyramids and their size, they still take your breath away
Egyptian Museum If the bust of Queen Nefertari in the Egyptian museum in Berlin seems awesome, you should see what the Antiquities Museum in Cairo has within it. This museum can proudly claim to be the single largest collection in the world – not less than 100,000 treasures belonging to Pharaohs! The building itself is a 100 years old, and was intended to put an end to Egyptian antiquities being carted out of the country by tomb raiders. There are so many things to see that by the time you get to the second floor, it is afternoon; your legs ache and you are starved. Therefore, head for the Tutankhamun's room first. Unlike the other tombs, the boy King's tomb was found with most of his treasures intact because it lay hidden below yet another tomb. Robbers didn't know of it's existence, until Howard Carter stumbled upon it. Displayed in the museum is everything that was found in the tomb, including the 22-pound solid gold burial mask and a six feet long, solid gold case (worth a princely sum) in which lay the body of the King. And then to the mummies' rooms.. as you enter the dimly lit room with the muslin wrapped bodies of Pharaohs and Queens in deep slumber, people talking in whispers as though not to wake the sleeping, you sense an eerie feeling, quite indescribable.
