Jerusalem travel guide

A Celebration of Colors

A trip to Jerusalem is an exciting journey into many types of cultures, traditions and neighborhoods. Along the history of the city, people of different religions, from all over the world, have set their homes in Jerusalem, making it an exotic place to discover. Many visitors to Jerusalem are drawn to the city’s exceptional ambience and unique aura.

The city of Jerusalem consists of three main parts:

The most historical holy part is the walled Old City, where the major sites, the lively alleys and the colorful markets are. The Old City itself is divided into four quarters: The Armenian Quarter, the Christian Quarter, the Jewish Quarter and the Muslim Quarter.

Outside the walls is the New City, also known as West Jerusalem. Here is where you can enjoy the vibrant modern metropolis of the active bars and cafes, the malls, the impressive museums and galleries, and the expanding Israeli neighborhoods and industrial high-tech zones.

The third part of Jerusalem is East Jerusalem, populated mostly with Palestinians, presenting a wide range of oriental restaurants, lively shops and inexpensive hotels.

Mount Herzl, Herzl Museum

Mount Herzl, Herzl Museum

The National Cemetery of the State of Israel is located on Mount Herzl in western Jerusalem. Among the graves on this hill are the country's main military cemetery and the plot of the greats of the nation, where the nation's leaders and Zionists are buried. Herzl Museum is located at the top of the mountain, where the National Memorial Hall commemorates all those who have fallen in defense of the country since 2017. The main ceremonies on Remembrance Day for the Fallen of Israel are held on Mount Herzl in memory of those who have fallen in the IDF, the Israel Police, and during hostilities. The president, prime minister and head of state all participate in these ceremonies. This ceremony opens Independence Day. In the Jerusalem Forest between Ein Kerem, Kiryat Yuval, Beit HaKerem, Beit Vagan, Yaffe Nof and Har Nof, the mountain rises to an elevation of 834 meters above sea level. Located next to Mount Herzl, Yad Vashem built the Mount of Remembrance on the shoulder next to it. Located on Mount Herzl's main entrance plaza, the Herzl Museum in Jerusalem showcases the practice and vision of Benjamin Ze'ev Herzl. In honor of Herzl's 100th birthday, the museum was renovated, upgraded, and reopened. In the new museum are four audiovisual presentations: one on Herzl's path to Zionism, one on his Zionist activities, one on Herzl's room, and a fourth on the comparison between Herzl's vision in Altneuland and the achievements of the State of Israel. As part of the museum, Herzl's original study will also be featured. There are four four-dimensional films at the new museum, which describe Herzl's life and contributions to Zionism, his involvement in Zionist politics, and his vision outlined in Altneuland. The museum complex includes two educational centers related to Zionism, managed by the World Zionist Organization.

On the Seam - a unique boutique museum

On the Seam - a unique boutique museum

On the Seam is a unique boutique museum which exhibits the finest art from Israel and abroad by leading contemporary artists, and discusses social, gender-oriented, ethnic and geographical issues, while emphasizing what connects us rather than what keeps us apart. Past exhibitions at the Museum, which was described by the National Geographic as “a fascinating and unique museum”, have dealt with themes of human rights, animal rights, ecology and sustainability, and the place of the individual, among others, in modern world. The Museum, which was selected by the CNN as “one of Israel’s 10 best museums”, is located in a beautiful neo-classical building, built in 1932. During the years Jerusalem was divided (1948-1967), the house was turned into an Israeli military outpost situated on the border between Israel and Jordan, and was the only passage between the two parts of the divided city. During the battles of the 1967 war, the house suffered hits from shells and bullets that are apparent to this day. Address: Kheil ha-Handasa St 4, Jerusalem,

The Old City of Jerusalem

The Old City of Jerusalem

The Holiest City on Earth, surrounded by glorious walls, the Old City of Jerusalem (Yerushalayim in Hebrew, El-Quds in Arabic) is the highlight of the city, and the actual place where the mythologies of Judaism, Christianity and Islam occurred. Within its lively narrow alleys and colorful markets lie the major historical and religious sites of the world's three main religions, revealing the ancient history from the times of King David, Jesus Christ and Prophet Muhammad. It is the Dome of the Rock at the Temple Mount, the third holiest Muslim site, from where Muhammad is said to have ascended to heaven on his Night Journey. The same spot, known as Mount Moriah, is where God tested Abraham by asking him to sacrifice his son Isaac, and on which King Solomon chose to build the First Temple. This is where the Western Wall, last remains of the Second Temple and most sacred Jewish site in the world, stands today. Not far from there lies the holiest Christian site, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, held to be the location of Jesus' crucifixion, burial and resurrection. Israel from Joe Robinson on Vimeo. The Old City is divided into four quarters - the Jewish Quarter, the Christian Quarter, the Muslim Quarter and the Armenian Quarter - each one comprises its own special shrines. Walking around the streets of the Old City you will not see any distinct separation between the four parts, but you might notice the cultural and architectural differences between them.
