Pros Cairo is considered as part of the Ancient Egypt. You can find the rich history of the ancient Egyptians and their tradition and culture with the different ancient establishments such as the Great Sphinx and the pyramids of Giza and these are the only remaining Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The city has the largest and oldest music and film industry in the Arab world. The Cairo International Film Festival has been ongoing and is a success for more than 33 years already. This city is also the hub of education and educational services in Egypt. There are several universities in the city as well as higher learning institutes.
Cons Air pollution is one serious problem in Cairo. There are air measurements that showed dangerous amount of lead, carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide in the air. Due to the city's lack of rain, narrow streets and tall buildings there is no way for the air to be dispersed. A mysterious black cloud appears over Cairo every fall and this causes respiratory illnesses and eye irritation. Aside from air pollution, the city also suffers from land pollution and water pollution. Public awareness of the importance of a clean environment is now established in the city.
