The streets in Cairo represents a huge daze even for those who don`t see them for the very first time. It is the place where the old and the modern meets, the traditional and new coexist. You can see street coffee shops where people enjoy their morning coffee or smoke a pipe, many bakeries with appetizing traditional products, markets, shopping centers and bazaars, juice shops that immediately prepares juices from fresh fruits, craftsman working in marble or just selling their products, play centers for children, in very happy colors, yellow cabs and donkeys, people resting and people hurried to resolve their business. An important street is the Azhar Street that makes the connection between the Salah Salem Street and the Opera Square in Cairo’s downtown. The Saydena El Hussein Mosque is situated on the other side street. Also, there is Khan El Khalili, the most important bazaar in Cairo, with shops with souvenirs and coffee shops. The Kornish El Nile Street is significant for the Cairo’s traffic. The Street of Salah Salem is a famous street that starts in Heliopolis and leads to the Islamic Cairo. If you want to feel like making a trip in the Islamic Egypt history, then don’t miss the Al Mui'z Street, the place of the Islamic monuments. There are numerous onion and garlic shops on this street, and when the garlic market ends, you can see and visit the Mosque of Al Hakim Be'amr Allah. The Al Mui'z Le Din Allah Street ends with Bab El Naser, Gate of Conquests, Bab El Futuah and Gate of Victory, which represents the gates and walls from north. Walking by the crowed streets of Cairo it is an incredible experience that you will not forget.
