For thousands of years the River Nile has been central to Egypt’s prosperity and these days one of Cairo’s most prosperous areas can be found on an island in the famous river. The Zamalek area lies in the northern half of Gezira Island in the heart of Cairo. The chic neighbourhood draws visitors from around the world to enjoy its pleasant gardens and exclusive restaurants.
Egypt is famous for its incredible historic sites but Cairo is as much a modern capital as it is an ancient wonder. Visitors enjoying the five-star amenities and superior service at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Cairo Heliopolis can enjoy experiencing this unique, contemporary feeling during a visit to Zamalek on Gezira Island.
