Free photography in the museums of Egypt, as well as on the territory of historical monuments, was allowed to tourists in Egypt. Such a measure will be introduced in the country on August 1, the country’s Ministry of Antiquities reported. Previously, visitors were charged a fee for using cameras depending on the importance of the museum or monument.
The corresponding decision was made by the leadership of the Supreme Council for Antiquities of the State. At the same time, the main reason was that, according to the head of the council, Mustafa Vaziri, permission to take photographs in museums and areas of archaeological sites could attract more tourists to Egypt.
At the same time, the council recalled that using a flash inside museums, in ancient tombs and in temples is still prohibited.
