Travel in Israel


Jerusalem has more than 70 names in Hebrew and has a special place in the hearts and souls of so many people around the world. To explore Jerusalem means to use all your senses, as Jerusalem brings history to life with the stories of Abraham and Isaac; Kings David and Solomon; and Jesus and Muhammad. Jerusalem is the place where traditions and beliefs blend; where holiness and politics lay side by side; and where rumors become truth. Explore the ancient City of David and the archeological gardens. Tour the Old City quarters, surrounded by the 16th-century wall, from the roof-top lookouts to the underground tunnels, and the holiest places in the world. Taste the local hummus and falafel at the Muslim Shuk, or enjoy strong Turkish coffee and sweet baklava in the narrow alleys. Visit the rewarding Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial and the famous Israel Museum. Stroll in the city center, the colorful Machane Yehuda Market, or the picturesque Ein Karem neighborhood and German Colony area. Jerusalem is Israel's National Capital and its political center, where the Knesset (parliament), the Supreme Court, the President, the Prime Minister, government offices and public agencies are all present. Jerusalem is the largest and most populous city in Israel (around 930,000 residents).
