egyptianways:

Shubra (Arabic: شبرا‎, Coptic: ϭⲱⲡⲣⲟ) is one of the largest districts of Cairo, divided into 3 areas: Shubra, Road El Farag, and Elsahel. Many streets in this area are covered with trees – a rather uncommon thing for Cairo as a whole. The district is heavily populated with about 3 million residents, mostly Muslims, but including a large Coptic population, as Shubra has one of the highest concentrations of Copts in Cairo. There are several churches throughout the neighborhoods, like the Church of St. Mary and St. George. Shubra is served by the Cairo Metro. It also has an Islamic flavor as there are mosques side by side to the churches in a way that most of the time, you can hardly tell to which the minaret belongs. One of the most renowned mosques is el Khazen Dar. The palace of Muhammad Ali is a famous tourist attraction.
