CAIRO – 5 April 2018: From the first step into the Nubian Village, one feels comfortable and cheerful; the houses are decorated with beautiful, simple colors that are comfortable for the eyes.

The Nubian civilization is undoubtedly an ancient civilization. The Nubians are ancient people who lived with the Pharaohs of Egypt on the banks of the Nile for thousands of years, setting up the civilization that we are still learning from.

To reach the village, one must ride a boat (falouka) – an important means of transportation in Aswan – and one must ride it at least two or three times during the journey. However, riding falouka is different from being on a big ship; it gives one an intense enjoyment of the Nile and its charm.
