Cairo is the capital of Egypt and consists of the governorates of Cairo, Qaliubiya and Giza. The city has about 12 million inhabitants. However, the unofficial population of Cairo is much higher, partly due to the high number of immigrants without legal residence in the city. The entire metropolitan region of Cairo, with a population of about 20 million, is the largest city in Africa and the Middle East and one of the largest cities in the world. The city is also one of the most polluted cities in the world and has enormous traffic chaos.

Cairo is located on the east bank of the Nile in northern Egypt, south of where the river branches into the delta into the rivers (also place names) Rosetta and Damietta. In the west lies the city of Giza with the Pyramids of Giza. To the south is the site of the classical Egyptian city of Memphis.
