The area is also set to host galleries, restaurants, studio apartments and workshops.
After the complete relocation of hundreds of tanneries from within the walls of Magra El-Eyoon to Robiki, the area is due for a total glow-up with the upcoming introduction of cultural and food services to the area. This is set to be a state-of-the-art entertainment complex that truly appreciates and upholds the beauty of the historic Old Cairo area, where visitors can bask in its culture.
The EGP 1 billion renovation project will also bring two theatres, one of which is open-air, as well as cinemas, restaurants, markets, a handicrafts centre, an art gallery and studio apartments available for short-term rent. Fancy!
There’s been proposals for the building of a cable car to link Al-Fustat Park with Al-Azhar Park to truly show off the city’s civilization and history. The project has the potential to make strides for domestic and international tourists alike, and will put a well-deserved spotlight on such a gorgeous, pivotal area of Cairo.
