Cairo, the capital of Egypt, is one of the oldest cities in the region and the world. Founded in 969, the city has long been a center of the region's political and cultural life, and is nicknamed "the city of a thousand minarets" for its preponderance of Islamic architecture. Cairo is also famous for its numerous tourist attractions such as the pyramids, the night life and the river Nile. In addition to these touristic magnets, Cairo has the oldest and largest film and music industries in the Arab world, as well as the world's second-oldest institution of higher learning, al-Azhar University. Many international media, businesses, and organizations have regional headquarters in the city. For these reasons and more, Meirc has scheduled training courses in Cairo.
