The Nile River has a sacred relationship with the people on its banks, especially with Egypt. The country is located in a desert region and the River Nile allowed the flourishing of one of the greatest civilizations of antiquity on its banks.

In addition to providing potable water, the waters in the Nile were also important for agriculture in the region. In addition, the Rio regime facilitated the practice of agriculture, as it flooded the banks and filled it with organic matter (humus).

So, as a result, the banks of the Nile are very productive and have been used since ancient times to grow wheat. No wonder, Egypt was considered for much of history as the breadbasket of the world.

Currently, the developments located on the waterfront and the Felucca ride are some of the great attractions that the Nile offers to its visitors.

In addition, as a traditional vessel from the Red Sea and the eastern Mediterranean, the Felucca makes your tour unique and has a very regional atmosphere. At some points, it is allowed to enter the waters of the Nile and be blessed by these waters that have made different civilizations flourish throughout history.

Budapest emerged from the unification of two distinct cities located on the banks of the Danube River. On one side is Buda, the mountainous part where the nobility lived, occupied for the longest time, full of mansions and medieval buildings. So, on the other side is Peste, the flat stretch of the most recent formation, where the institutional buildings are and where most of the population lives.
