It is the largest square in Cairo close to the Egyptian museum. You can find the Interior ministry, the Arabic League here. In 2011 the protest against Mubarak took place here.

It's historical context is obviously important but it's just a basic square which you will definitely see as you travel through Cairo but not a separate stop or destination. We have a full travel VLOG with videos and reviews of from all over the world....More

I was in Cairo earlier in the year and walked around Tahrir Square on my own both during the day and at night. I have visited there several times. There are many shops nearby and some major hotels. I found it very safe.
