About Nasr City
One of Cairo’s modern and biggest neighborhoods in terms of area, Nasr City was built as an extension for Heliopolis. It is located in eastern Cairo between Heliopolis, Mokattam, and New Cairo. It is a relatively modern neighborhood, and most of its areas are well planned. The city is distinguished by its commercial activity and its unique position between the center of Cairo and most of the new cities. Nasr City is very crowded due to the commercial activity. Nasr City offers a variety of housing levels, the majority of the city offers upper-middle housing, yet there are areas that offer upscale housing, and others that offer economic housing, and a few areas that can be categorized as slums. Nasr City hosts City Stars Mall, Azhar University, Child Garden and International Garden. It is easy to access using public transportation, and it can be entered from Nasr road, Shaheed axis, Ring road, or via Metro (Stadium Station and Exhibits Station).
Rabaa is one of the most popular and important squares of Nasr City and it is located directly on Autostrad road. One if its disadvantages is the high traffic at most times. The surrounding residential area tends to offer middle and upper middle housing.
