UTC: +2 INTL DIALLING CODE: +20 EGYPT is a country in North Africa that includes the Sinai Peninsula, a land bridge to Asia. Covering an area of about 1,001,450 km2 (386,560 square miles), Egypt borders Libya to the west, Sudan to the south, the Gaza Strip and Israel to the east. Egypt's important role in geopolitics stems from its strategic position: a transcontinental nation, it possesses a land bridge (the Isthmus of Suez) between Africa and Asia, which in turn is traversed by a navigable waterway (the Suez Canal) that connects the Mediterranean Sea with the Indian Ocean via the Red Sea. Egypt is the 15th most populous country in the world, and the second most populous country in Africa (after Nigeria). Egypt is famous for its ancient civilisation and some of the world's most ancient and important monuments, including the Giza Pyramids and the Great Sphinx of Giza; the southern city of Luxor contains a particularly large number of ancient artifacts such as the Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings. Today, Egypt is widely regarded as an important political and cultural centre of the Middle East. Most superyachts visit Egypt in order to transit the Suez Canal. A popular cruising destination for superyachts is in the regions surrounding Hurgada, Safaga and Sharm El Sheikh in the Red Sea.
