Tahrir Square is located in central Cairo, close to the Nile River. It is hemmed in by large buildings like the Egyptian Museum, the American University of Cairo, and the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. The 6 October Bridge is also nearby so chances are that you will pass this Square many times while driving to Cairo’s far flung attractions. A multi-laned traffic... More

Nothing much to see really. Just drive by. It is a historic landmark for the country since the revolution of 2011 after all... My hotel room was overviewing the square. Amazing how noisy and busy it is 24 hours a day.

This place became very famous after the troubles that happened in Cairo,it is crowded at any time of the day, feels like all Cairo citizens are sitting in this square holding their mobiles typing and playing.

We took a taxi to Egyptian Museum and took a short walk to Liberation Square. Please be careful as there are 5 lanes of traffic to get across and Cairo is not easy. We tagged along with the locals so we did not get hit by any cars. Once we got to the square there were lots of people relaxing... More

The square was highlighted during the Egyptian revolution back in January 2011. Unless you lived the events , the place would mean nothing to you! IN the 70s it had beautiful fountains and gardens, but right now it's just a square that is in the heart of the city, surrounded by the Egyptian museum , Huge government building to deal... More
