Nasr City is a district of Cairo, Egypt. It is located to the east of the CBD and mostly consists of condominiums. It was established in the 1960s as an extension to neighboring Heliopolis.

It is the largest district in Cairo, occupying nearly 250 km² of the capital's total area of 1,445 km². For this reason, it is divided into 10 sub-districts, which are simply numbered instead of named. It was also locally known for its well designed modern road system. Unfortunately bad management of the traffic crisis converted every road intersection to a U-turn.

Nasr City is famous for its numerous shopping malls (Genena Mall, Tiba Mall, City Center, Serag Mall and City Stars - the biggest mall in Egypt to date -). Among its major landmarks is the pyramid-like Unknown Soldier Memorial, which is opposite the grandstand at which President Sadat was assassinated. It is home to the new premises of Al-Azhar University, the Cairo International Conference Center, the Cairo International Stadium and several government buildings.
