Tourism potential of Uzbekistan presented in Egypt

On May 13-14 this year, the 13th International Festival of Culture and Tourism was held on the territory of the prestigious University “October 6th” in Cairo.

Along with the diplomatic missions of more than 20 countries of the world in Egypt, the Embassy of Uzbekistan also took an active part in the event.

More than 20,000 local and international students from the 6th of October University, where more than 500 young people from 31 countries of the Middle East and Africa, as well as members of the general public, have participated in this intercultural festival.

At two stands organized on the territory of the event, the participants of the festival were presented with various information, books, booklets and brochures about the tourism opportunities of Uzbekistan.

Unique architectural monuments of ancient cities - Bukhara, Samarkand and Khiva, as well as fascinating natural landscapes, traditions of decorative and applied arts of Uzbekistan were shown on a separate large screen.

Of particular interest to the visitors of the stands were visual illustrative materials about the beautiful nature, national culture and culinary arts of our country, which in Egypt is called the birthplace of Imam al-Bukhari, Ibn Sina, al-Khwarizmi and other great scientists and thinkers.

During the two-day event, as part of the promotion of gastronomic tourism, guests of the Uzbek stand were given traditional Uzbek dishes.

The embassy's stand and delicious national dishes were worthily appreciated by the organizers and participants of the festival.
