It is interesting, but a guide is needed to appreciate the Citadel. Guides are relatively inexpensive because Egyptian Pound is way down.

The building itself is very very beautiful, and there's another good attraction, you may have a good view outside of the building to see the city of Cairo, this place is good for the photographer and selfie.
