Tomb of the Virgin (Jehoshaphatova Valley)
Christian Shrine Tomb of the Virgin
Empress Elena (mother of Emperor Constantine the First) built a church in 326, which was able to survive unchanged until the XI century. It was of great importance, since it was erected directly above the tomb of the Virgin. After a while, on the site of the ruins left from the church, the temple of the daughter of Baldwin II Melisenda began to rise. There she was buried. The Sixth Ecumenical Council decided to open the tomb. As a result of the work done, funeral sheets and a belt were found.

The temple itself is located underground. From the entrance there is a wide staircase made of stone, which has 48 steps. The church is built in the shape of a cross. Inside the building is a small chapel and the tomb of the Virgin. Continue reading

Excursion from Sharm El Sheikh to Israel

Group bus excursion from Sharm El Sheikh to Israel, Palestine and the Dead Sea. Details of the tour, useful tips, crossing the Egypt-Israel border, security measures at the Dead Sea.

Tours in Sharm El Sheikh are very popular due to the Red Sea and the opportunity to relax on an all-inclusive basis. But for us personally, the choice fell in the direction of Sharm because of the opportunity to make an excursion to Israel.

Holidays in Israel in the winter

The time when it is better to go on vacation to Israel definitely falls in autumn and early spring. Moreover, both of these periods are ideal for any type of holiday in the country. Spring with its still relatively mild temperatures and colorful blooms is the time when it is better to go to Israel for excursions. Jerusalem with its temples and Gethsemane gardens, Bahai gardens, the Nabeul desert – all this is better to see in the spring. But the summer heat is a period when it is not worth going to Israel, even for the sake of a beach holiday. It is so hot here that even the seas are not refreshing. But the off-season is just the time when it’s worth flying to Israel, among other things, for swimming in the Red and Mediterranean Seas. In the Red Sea, you can swim in general all year long, so here you can splash in plenty even in winter. Continue reading

Saturday transport appeared in Tel Aviv

In Tel Aviv, six free bus routes have been launched that operate on Shabbat – Jewish Saturday, when regular city transport does not go.
