Israel- The Holy Land

Most of the people know Israel only from news. Many doesn't know that there is much more. Beautiful country, friendly people, intresting attractions and good atmosphere. This thread is to show Israel in other aspect.

From green Galilee in the North to parties and beach in Tel Aviv, From holly sites in Jerusalem, to beautiful (and hot) Negev and Judean deserts in the south.

So we start with the capital.

Jerusalem
