National Library in Cairo

Also known as Dar El Kotob', the National Library & Archives in Cairo has finally opened its doors again after closing in 2014 as a result of damage sustained in car bomb attack of a nearby police station.

The renovation was made possible after UAE's Sheikh Mohamed Bin Sultan Al Qassemi gave Egypt a EGP 33 million grant.

The library is the oldest of its kind in Egypt and houses millions of books and records, including rare Persian and Ottoman Turkish manuscripts, and a 19th Century Papyri collection written in Arabic and Greek.
