Known in Egyptian as Medinat Nasr, Nasr City is a satellite town that grew up in the east of Cairo during the 60's and 70's. Situated south of Heliopolis
, it's really rather difficult to tell where Nasr City ends, and Heliopolis begins.
Nasr City is a rich area of Cairo, famous for its shopping and entertainment. There are a number of shopping malls here, such as the Genena Mall (which has a small ice skating rink!). More importantly, the City Stars mega mall is in Nasr City.
There are also lots of coffee shops and fast food restaurants, and a number of cinemas. Beyond that, there isn't a great deal to Nasr City that will interest foreign visitors to Cairo, though it does also contain the Cairo Stadium, Sadat's tomb, and the October War Panorama
