The Faras Gallery is the only gallery in Europe with exposition of the early Christian exhibits brought from Nubia (present borderline of Sudan and Egypt). The exhibition was established under Unesco patronage. It is the result of the work of Polish archeologists, who were saving the exhibits against being flooded during the construction of a dam on the Nile. Contact us, if you want to:
