Anba Theodosius, Coptic Orthodox Bishop-General of Giza, has opened the floating boat “al-Dahabiya”, literally “the Golden”, which is permanently moored on the Nile bank close to the Giza Diocese.
The Dahabiya had been closed for months on account of renovation work by the church of St Mark in Giza.
The floating boat has since the 1980s served a dire need of the Coptic public for an affordable, scenic outing on the Nile. Over the years, it has been a very popular venue for families and friends to gather and enjoy what would have otherwise been an unaffordable pleasure.
