Jerusalem – tours for seekers of new experiences
The historic entrance to the city is the Jaffa Gate. Due to its symbolic role, it is worth entering the city at least once through it. Nearby is the Tower of David. Although it was never the dwelling place of the biblical king, it hides many interesting exhibits. It also offers one of the most beautiful views of the city.
The highlight of the Jewish Quarter is the Western Wall also known as the Wailing Wall or from Hebrew Kotel. It is Judaism’s holiest site. Researchers speculate that it is the last surviving element of the Jerusalem Temple built at the initiative of King Solomon.
In the Christian Quarter one can find many places described in the New Testament. The greatest significance is attributed to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. It represents the alleged place of death of Jesus Christ. Every year it becomes a pilgrimage destination for millions of believers from all over the world. Travellers can also walk the Stations of the Cross, and visit Mount Zion, where the Last Supper was supposed to have taken place.
While visiting Jerusalem, a visit to the Muslim Quarter is also a must. Highlights in this part of the city include the Dome on the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque. On the plan of the old city, the Armenian Quarter occupies the smallest area, however, it is certainly worth your attention.
Scattered around the city are also sites related to the Crusades. Each of these places is a reminder of the turbulent history of Jerusalem, which has been the arena of numerous conflicts over the centuries.
