Overview of Egypt
Egypt's culture and customs are truly cosmopolitan and the perfect fusion of many of the other cultures and traditions, like, Pharaonic, Islamic, Coptic. Here the tradition, introduced by pharaohs is prevalent as well as the tribal culture and traditions, and even the customs of invaders are somehow seen present amidst modern Egypt.
