Cairo is a bustling metropolis, the largest in the Arab world. Greater Cairo is estimated to have more than 15 million inhabitants, an exact number is impossible to calculate. This, unfortunately, causes a high level of pollution, which potential visitors should be aware of. Close to Cairo are the historical artifacts of Gizeh, including the world famous Pyramids, located on the Western banks of the Nile. The city center can be divided into an old and a new part, with the new part being the commercial district, while the old part is traditionally more residential, centered around the Azhar-mosque.
