The bride of the Nile
by Pakinam Moussa - 5 years, 1 month ago
Minya is known as the bride of the Nile River, and it indeed is. The new Corniche at Minya is very clean and fun to be at. There are shops and there are usually shows playing every now and then at the Corniche. You can take a ride on the Hantour (the cart that uses horses to run) and go through Minya's streets and inside parks and of course by the Nile banks. Minya reminds you of Egyptian history since it used to be a major city in the Pharaonic era. Tel el Amarna is located at Minya and there you can see many of Ancient Egyptian ruins and monuments.
