In the film, Mashat was pictured speaking about downtown Cairo describing it as part of the nation’s valuable historical treasures, saying: “It was very well-known in the Middle East and the world.”
“You imagine yourself as a woman wearing a very nice chic dress with a hat, maybe having a coffee, you just live a movie in your mind,” Mashat described.
While looking up to the ancient buildings in the streets and districts in the heart of Cairo, passersby can go back in time and remember many old Egyptian movies that were filmed in this well known part of Cairo.
“Many people from all around the world come to specific places in Khedival Cairo because they read about them in books or watched them in old classic Egyptian movies,” the minister pointed out.
She expressed her appreciation for all efforts exerted to develop the area to restore its old luster, beauty and revive its legacy.
The video was produced as a part of the Egyptian Tourism Authority’s efforts to develop promotion mechanisms and expand in using social media platforms in line with the third part of Egypt’s Tourism Reform Program.
