ARRANGEMENT, SIZE AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Located in a northeast corner of Africa, the Arab Republic of Egypt has the area of 1 001 450 sq.km (386 662 quarter. Miles), 1 572 km long (997 miles) and also 1,196 km (743 miles) of a не-sw. However the cultivated and settled area (valleys of Nile, the Delta and oases) makes only about 3,5% of the area of sushi in Egypt; The Libyan and Western deserts occupy about 75% of total number. Rather, the space occupied by Egypt is a little more, than is three times more than the State of New Mexico. Outside the Suez Canal in the east the Sinai Peninsula crosses Asia; Sinai was occupied by the Israeli forces from 1967 to 1982.
Egypt is limited on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, across Israel and the Red Sea, on vessels and on Libya. Total length of overland border is 2665 km (1 656 miles), and its general coastline makes 2450 km (1,522 miles). The capital of Egypt, Cairo, is located in a northeast part of the country.
Height of Egypt fluctuates from 133 m (436 feet) below sea-level in the Libyan Desert up to 2629 m (8 625 feet) higher on the Sinai Peninsula. The delta of Nile is a wide alluvial earth, an inclined plane to the sea approximately on 160 km (100 miles), with the 250-kilometer (155-mile) sea front between Alexandria (Al-Iskandariya) and Port Said. To the south from Cairo the most part of the country (known as the Top Egypt) is the plantation rising up to about 460 m (1500 feet). The narrow valley of Nile is surrounded with rocks 550 m high (1800 feet) as the river flows approximately in 900 km (560 miles) from Aswan to Cairo. A number of cascades and thresholds in Aswan, known as the First cataract (other cataracts are in Sudan), creates a barrier to the movement upstream.
