What people say

"While statistics are iffy, it is believed that anywhere from 5 to 20 percent of Egypt's population is Christian. The largest group is the Coptic Church, an ancient church that speaks the language of ancient Egypt written to Greek letters. Coptic Cairo could be a whole day of exploring fascinating ancient traditions. However, if you're only interested in the highlights, the Hanging Church is where you should visit. Believed to be built during the 600's, the Church is among the oldest in Cairo and is the seat of the Coptic Pope."
"A super unique church in Coptic Cairo"
