Overview of festivals and celebrations in Egypt
The Sun Festival in Abu Simbel is timed to the victory of Pharaoh Ramses II over the Hittites. In commemoration of the event, two temples were cut in the rock on the banks of the Nile: in honor of the Pharaoh himself and his wife. Tourists from all over the world come to see how the sun's rays illuminate the stone statues of the ruler, the gods Ptah, Amun, and Ra. Residents of the surrounding areas arrange large-scale celebrations with music, dancing, and costumed performances. In the evening, a fascinating laser show telling about the history of Egypt takes place at the walls of the temple. The Cairo International Film Festival is held in winter. In February, you can visit the World Book Fair, which is visited by world-famous writers. The annual fishing festival with contests and prizes takes place in Hurghada at the same time.
