Foundation of Hurghada

Hurghada is one of the Al Bahr Al Ahmar governorate towns on the Red Sea coast. The Egyptians built the present city of Hurghada in the early 20th century. Until recently, it was a small fishing village with a small population. Since the 19th century, Egyptian and foreign investors have continually enlarged the city. Therefore, it became the leading coastal resort on the Red Sea.

Undoubtedly, the discovery of Oil in this area in 1913 enhanced its rapid development. Regardless, its production and export began in 1921 under British oil magnates.

Hurghada has a population of 248,000 and is divided into:

    Екскурсій в Єгипті багато, і ми з’їздили на кілька з них і в подарунок туроператор подарував нам оглядову екскурсію. Перше місце, яке ми відвідали – це Мусульманський храм. Дуже красивий. Наступна зупинка – Акваріуми. Подивилися на риб, які мешкають в Червоному морі. Бачила і акулу, і черепах, і крилатку, і мурену і багато красивих рибок. Потім заїхали в магазин з маслами. Я їх дуже люблю. Також можна було купити різні чаї та продукти, виготовлені в Єгипті. Остання зупинка – це магазин сувенірів. Я купила тарілки, магніти. А так в магазині продають рушники, постільна білизна, східні костюми, футболки, тарілки, статуетки, магніти і багато всього цікавого. Поїздкою залишилася дуже задоволена

    I booked the city tour with my friends because I think that’s the best way of knowing a new place. And we weren’t disappointed! There was so many places to visit, at the end of excursion I couldn’t feel my legs but it was so worth it. We visited a lot of markets, beautiful embankment, a mosque and lots of other places. We even got a chance for shopping! I didn’t know it was possible to do so many things in one excursion but it was definitely possible. Do I recommend? Absolutely!

    Отдыхали с подружкой в Египте впервые, поэтому решили обязательно взять обзорную экскурсию по Хургаде. Мы увидели столько достопримечательностей города, погрузились в его историю. К своему стыду, я мало чего знаю о истории Египта. Мы посетили старый город, затем заезжали на фруктовый и рыбный рынки, я впервые побывала в мечети , позже посмотрели церковь, а в завершение нашей экскурсии заехали в порт. Накупили разных сувениров для своих родных. Экскурсия очень познавательная, спасибо Ландиус Травел.
