This is a 'historical' square but in reality its just a large urban park with a traffic circle in the middle. The park is used at night as a meeting place where couples sit on the traffic circle and watch the cars go round-and-round.

So, while the installation of the Muslim Brotherhood turned out to be a terrible outcome, the uprising itself was an event that is seared into the consciousness of all Egyptians. It was very cool to be in this space. Fabulous view of the beautiful museum.

Used to be the most elegant square in Middle East in the first half of the previous century but lack of discipline and traffic jam led to losing this unique status particularly after the January 2011 events it needs replanting and discipline The square is at the heart of Cairo and a symbol of freedom

Liberation Square is a nice walking location close to the Cairo Museum. Like much of the sites in Cairo it is well protected and safe.

It was nice to visit Tahrir Square. It is clean now with tank and military and police presence. It is clean now but I could only imagine how packed it got during the revolution.

Not much to see, but good to go to so you can see where history was made. You need just 15 min to take it all in.
