Egypt is a transcontinental nation that straddles both Asia's southwest and Africa's northeast.
Egypt is among the oldest histories of any nation, with roots that may be found in the sixth–fourth millennia BCE throughout the Nile Delta. The earliest writing, agriculture, urbanization, organized religion, and central government were all developed in Ancient Egypt, which is regarded as the cradle of civilization.
This heritage is reflected in iconic structures like the old Giza Necropolis and its Great Sphinx and also the ruins of Thebes, Memphis, Karnak, and the Valley of the Kings, which continue to attract a lot of attention from both the academic and general public.
Egypt is famous for many things, including its ancient pyramid, family holidays, surprise proposals, and solo adventures.
