Egypt map and its location in the world

The major part of Egypt is located north east of Africa with Sinai lying in Asia which enabled Egypt to be the link between Europe and both Africa and Asia. This location also had a major impact on the Egyptian civilization as it benefited significantly from the different cultures of neighbouring countries for thousands of years.

Egypt has also long shores on the Mediterranean and the Red sea which has helped in the openness of the country to foreign people contrary to other people in the region.

Egypt area is 1,002,450 Sq Km but with the desert constituting more than 90% of it. Although the population is 79 million (2010 estimate), it is not distributed evenly as most of the people (99%) live in the Nile valley, delta and the North coast of the Mediterranean. Only 380,000 people live in Sinai peninsula and the inhabitants of the Red sea area is approximately 288,000 people.

Roads in Egypt constitutes a network of approximately 48,000 km covering all inhabited areas of the country and extending to remote areas on the borders. The railway network has a total distance of 9500 km consisting of 28 lines.
