Historically, the country extended from the South of Egypt until the south of Nile River.

As long as we talk about Nubia, we should not to forget mentioning the beauty and splendor of its houses as they are like paintings overlooking the great Nile River, which give pleasure to your soul just by looking at them. These houses are either in the form of domes, or houses topped with palm fronds, putting in mind that these roofs are at a great height and the walls are made of mud. They are usually painted white to be protected from the sun's heat.

Now we come to the most interesting part, which is talking about the tourist attractions that Nubia contains. There is the Abu Simbel Temple, the Edfu Temple, and the Kalabsha Temple, which is the largest sandstone temple in Nubia and took about 200 years to build.
