Cairo, Egypt
Cairo is the capital city of Egypt and the largest city on the African continent, with a population
of 6.8 million (2006). It boasts the only metro system in Africa, but also has a serious air
pollution problem with more than 2 million vehicles on its streets. The city's proximity to the
Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza helps attract many tourists.
