Today i have a big day exploring 2 UNESCO Heritage Sites in Cairo.

Historical part of Old Islamic Cairo is inscribed as a heritage site. I came here couple hours without any particular plan. This part of the city is really old, it got layers of history and still a place where people live and pray. My walk around couple of streeys here were really great! It was a rare chance to see moments of real life together with some sights and markets here.

It is definetely not like other Old cities, more real, less touristy.

Streets are the best thing to see here. The district is really a steeet photography heaven: exotic, bold and charismatic. There are also around dozen of beautiful building here, which were schools, mosques, cisterns etc.

 

Couple hours well spend for sure!
