One of the most vital highways in Cairo that extend from Orouba tunnel to the Airport Bridge. Orouba street hosts different landmarks like Baroon Palace, Marriott Airport Hotel, and Fairmont Heliopolis Hotel. Most buildings on Orouba Street offer luxury housing with limited building heights, in addition to many historic villas and palaces. Orouba Streets also hosts several army establishments like Galaa Club and Hospital and the Military College.
Heliopolis was originally built by the Belgian billionaire Baron Amban, and it now considered one of Cairo’s sophisticated and luxurious neighborhoods. It is close to Cairo Airport, and has an abundance of schools, hospitals, hotels, churches and mosques. Since it was established, Heliopolis has been known for its unique planning and its preserved architecture elegance. However, lately, the neighborhood has been becoming overcrowded and parking is very hard to find. Heliopolis offers mostly upscale and luxury housing units, and there are some areas that offer middle and upper-middle units, and areas around Gesr El Sues tend to offer more economic properties. Some of Heliopolis key landmarks are Baron Palace, Merryland Garden, Presidential Palace, Merghany street, Thawra street, Orouba street, Nabil Waqad street, Safeir square, Triumph square, and Hejaz square. Heliopolis can be reached using public transportation or Metro from any part of Cairo, and it is surrounded by key streets like Salah Salem, Gesr El Sues and Nasr road .
