The Pyramids of Giza
The Pyramids of Giza are the only one of the seven ancient wonders still remaining to this day. It is believed that they were built to serve as an eternal resting place of the pharaohs.
The oldest and largest of the three pyramids were built on demand of Khufu or named also Cheops. The middle-sized pyramid was built by Khafre or also called Chefre, the son of Khufu. And the third and smallest one was built by Menkaure alias Mycerinus, the grandson of Khufu and son of Khafre.
Despite the fact that throughout the millennia ancient civilizations built incredible structures across the planet, the Pyramids of Giza outshine nearly all of them.
The Sphinx is situated at the Giza Plateau adjacent to the Pyramids of Giza on the West Bank of the Nile River. It is the largest monolith statue in the world. The Sphinx is an immense stone sculpture of a creature with the body of a lion and the head of a human. It is also the oldest monumental sculpture and it is commonly believed to have been built by Khafre.
Sphinx was built by Egyptians to guard important areas such as tombs and temples.
Egyptian Museum of Antiquities
Next on the agenda is the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities that is housing the most valuable collections of artifacts and antiquities of its kind. The more than 100.000 items in the museum include some 1.700 artifacts from the tomb of Tutankhamun, including the solid gold mask that covered the pharaoh’s head.
