5 Fascinating Things You Need To Know Before Travelling To Egypt For AFCON 2019 by TifaTravels(m): 4:43pm On Jun 20, 2019
Get to know about this interesting country before attending the African football tournament scheduled to start 21st June 2019.

As you prepare to travel to this interesting country for the tournament, which is few days away from now, we recommend getting to know a few facts.

Here are five fascinating things you need to know before traveling to Egypt for AFCON 2019.

EGYPT IS IN TWO DIFFERENT CONTINENTS
Let’s start with one of the most unique things about this nation. Egypt is a transcontinental country with parts in both the African and Asian continents. The county is located on the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia. These two parts are linked together by the Sinai Peninsula, which is a land bridge between two continents.

POPULATION
According to the World Population Review, the most populous African country is Nigeria with almost 196 million people as of 2018. Ethiopia is second with a population of 107 million, while Egypt comes in third place with almost 100 million people. It is also the most populous in the Middle East with 78.8 million.

RELIGION
The major faith here is Islam, which is practiced by 90 percent of the population. As such, you can expect to hear the call to prayer five times a day as it definitely affects businesses and activities. Christians, Jews, and atheists, the minority, can also be found here.

TOURIST ATTRACTIONS
As a country with 6,000 years of recorded cultural history, you can expect to see loads of beautiful sights like pyramids and Giza Necropolis, one of the remaining seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

You can also look forward to visiting The Egyptian Museum which has more than 120,000 items, the Egyptian National Military Museum and the 6th of October Panorama.

SPORTS
Football is regarded as the most popular sport in Egypt which might explain why the football-loving country chose to submit their bid alongside South Africa to host the finals.

They received 16 votes from the executive committee while South Africa got only one. As a result, Egypt will be hosting their fifth AFCON tournament from June 15 to July 13th.
