Visit to El Tahreer Square will bring you all memories of the Egyptian act of revolution, will find several peploe try to sell Egyptian Flags as well as other small items, this could be a short vist after visiting the important National Musium.

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

Nothing fancy just a square even though its the largest in Cairo, you are most likely to find yourself passing by to get to lots of places like the Egyptian museum, or the downtown area.

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.

The intersection of Cairo. Not much to see or do but you can stand where the riots in Cairo ended up. Most of us watched on the news and it was fascinating to stand in its shadows.
