Must See: Jerusalem

Jerusalem: the capital city of Israel, holy grounds for not one but three major religions and one of the oldest cities in the world. This ancient and sacred city has survived millennia of conflict and conquest, building and destructions, and it has now come down to us filled with priceless treasures, sights and flavors. Book your stay in one of many Jerusalem hotels and treat yourself to one of the wonders of the world.

Israel Museum

While there is plenty of history in the city to take in just by strolling down the street, no visit to Jerusalem would be complete without a visit to the incomparable Israel Museum, where the proud and ancient history of the land is condensed in one fascinating place. Make sure to see the famed Dead Sea Scrolls.

Church of the Holy Sepulchre

The importance of this site to Christians cannot be overstated; it is believed to be the exact location of the crucifixion of Christ. The interior of the church is a wonder to anyone with an interest in history, art history or religion.

Yad Vashem – The Holocaust Museum

It seems fitting that the capital of the official Jewish state is home to a significant Holocaust museum, the largest collection of materials in the world.

Wailing Wall

The Wailing Wall, also known as the Western Wall, is a powerful site of the utmost sanctity to the Jewish people. While visitors of all religions can slide a prayer into one of the cracks, the structure is believed to be the last remains of Solomon’s Second Temple. A definite must while Booking Israel visits.

Dome of the Rock

Representing the Muslim presence in Jerusalem, this third-holiest Islamic site looms with both grandeur and exquisite grace in the form of its incomparable golden dome. The interior is awash in precious art, but visiting hours for non-Muslims is restricted, so plan ahead.
