Best time to visit Aswan Attractions

Autumn or spring is the best time to travel here. Trains are not as busy as in winter, and travel is not as tiring as in summer, when long siesta, cold showers, and air conditioning seem to be the most important things, and the number of tourists is declining.

Discover Aswan Attractions on the Nile

For all those who want to experience an adventure in Egypt, the Nile cruise is just the thing. Because on the one hand, you get to know the culture of ancient Egypt in this way as part of guided tours with trained archaeologists and Egyptologists, on the other hand, it is something different from the common holiday in the hotels. Because the Nile cruise consists of a week of pure culture and a week of a dream vacation in one of our Red Sea Hotels.

Aswan – an impressive city of historic size

Along with Luxor and Cairo, Aswan is probably one of the most impressive cities in Egypt. When thinking of Aswan, the “Pearl of the Nile”, the first thing most people think of is the famous dam. But Aswan has a lot to offer. In addition to great and interesting hotels, you will of course also find numerous sights here, as in Luxor or Cairo, about which more information should now be found.

 

The attractions of Aswan are ancient temples, islands, and, of course, the Aswan Dam.

One of the important sights of Aswan is the Kom-Ombo temple, which was built in the Greco-Roman period. The shrines of Horus and Sebek are also located here, and the temple itself is dedicated to both gods. The temple is decorated with a large number of bas-reliefs, most of which were made in the 1st century BC. The walls of the sanctuary are replete with images of medical instruments, which indicates a sufficiently high level of knowledge of the ancestors in medicine.

Another interesting attraction of Aswan is the temples located on Phile Island, which is easily accessible by water transport. As the legend says, it was here that Osiris found his last refuge. Today this unique temple complex is under the protection of UNESCO.

Pay attention to the Aswan Dam. Even Soviet engineers were involved in its construction. The building was built in 1970. The dam is 111 meters high, 3.8 km long, and 1 km wide. There is an observation deck from where you can look at the picturesque surroundings. By the way, the Aswan Dam is also called the Pyramid of the 20th century. There is also a beautiful reservoir here.

Tourists-lovers of cultural pastime can visit the Museum of Antiquities of Aswan, on the island of Elephantine. Here you can gain an extensive knowledge of the art of Ancient Egypt.
