In the footsteps of the Nubian civilization

One of the most popular attractions in Sudan is Meroe pyramids. There are always plenty of tour groups and crowds.

Also, the pyramids are the only remaining symbol of the ancient civilization.

Another wonderful place is the Suakin Island near the Sudan port. In the past, it was an important trade center. These days, it attracts a lot of tourists due to its unusual appearance. Coral is the main material for the exterior decoration of local buildings. It makes the island look fabulous.
