The Fascination Of Jerusalem

Jerusalem, located in the Judaean Mountains between the Dead Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, is the largest city in Israel. It is also one of the world's oldest cities. Biblical tradition has it that Jerusalem was founded by King David, and certainly it can trace its history back to the Bronze Age. This history has been a turbulent one; with the city having been destroyed on two occasions, and been under siege and captured and recaptured numerous times. This sense of history is palpable even today, and is what makes Jerusalem such a fascinating place. One thing that is very noticeable is that Jerusalem is a very multicultural city, which also contributes to its feeling of vibrancy. For one thing, you can find food from just about any country and culture. The old city is a World Heritage Site. This historical core of Jerusalem is surrounded by defensive walls from the Ottoman period. Here can be found The Temple Mount, the most important site in Judaism, surmounted by the beautiful Dome Of The Rock, the golden dome for which it is named gleaming in the sunlight. There is also the many ancient monuments of The Mount Of Olives, including the Tombs of the Prophets. To get a good feel for the city's history, the Time Elevator is a must. This special effects laden multimedia experience chronicles 3,000 years and is a spellbinding journey for all ages; an ideal start to a family holiday.

Self Catering Holiday Rental Accommodations In The Jerusalem Area

You will find a wide and varied selection of high quality self catering holiday rentals in the Jerusalem area in which to spend your summer holidays. In fact, you might even be spoiled for choice. Many of the accommodations are apartments, but a few houses are available, too. You could choose a self catering holiday apartment on the highest hill in the city, commanding fabulous views of this enchanting place, and just fifteen minutes walk from the Old City. Or an apartment suite in the Jewish Quarter, overlooking Hurva Synagogue and only minutes from the Western Wall. This was built an astounding 600 years ago, and with its high domed ceiling makes for a strikingly impressive, one of a kind holiday experience. Alternatively you could opt for a self catering holiday condo in the much sought after location, Jerusalem of Gold. This new apartment project has been built to an astonishingly high standard, and boasts a swimming pool. How about a luxury garden apartment on a quiet, residential street just twenty minutes walk from the Old City? Or perhaps a tranquil cottage with a garden and patio, in the heart of Jerusalem's German colony. Imagine spending your family holiday in a traditional stone built house with a private and well established garden, just fifteen minutes from the city centre. Or a self catering Moroccan style apartment with a raised floor gallery style living room, and access to a charming garden with a covered patio.

Exciting Things To Do In The Jerusalem Area

Jerusalem has many fine museums. The country's national museum is the Israel Museum, which attracts nearly a million visitors a year, and which boasts the foremost collection of Holy Land archaeological artifacts in the world. In the grounds of the museum is the Shrine of the Book, where the world's oldest biblical texts, the Dead Sea Scrolls, are to be found. The Yad Vashem is the official Israeli memorial to the victims of The Holocaust. There is no fee for admission, and visit here is a profoundly moving experience. The Biblical Zoo has some 1,200 animals and spotlights species mentioned in the Bible which are now extinct in the region. The Botanical Gardens contain striking displays of plants from around the world, and a 2,000 year old burial cave. Of course, no visit to this part of Israel would be complete without experiencing the strange beauty of The Dead Sea, which lies a few miles from Jerusalem. This is the Earth's lowest body of water, and certainly the most salty. It is actually a lake which is so saline that even non-swimmers have no problem floating high in the water, which is said to have therapeutic properties.
