مصر هبة النيل : هيرودوت 

The Greek historian Herodotus wrote that "Egypt was the gift of the Nile" 

The Nile is t

he longest river in the world, stretching north for approximately 4,000 miles from East Africa to the Mediterranean.

It had changed its  location and size gradually over millions of years according to the studies.

The Nile has two major branches, the White Nile and Blue Nile. The latter is the source of most of the water and fertile soil,but The former is the longer. It runs from East Africa to upper Egypt and ends in a large delta that empties into the Mediterranean Sea, most of its length through Egypt.

 It had an important role in the development of Egyptian civilization.

The Nile is living in the hearts of the Egyptians .If you had been in Egypt you will see the Egyptians always going to the Nile if they feel sad ,angry, happy and also the lovers are going there in the open air smelling the flower's smell and pure air .
