The Dead Sea

For hundreds of years, humanity has not ceased to wonder at the harsh lifelessness of this sea. This is the water basin with the highest salinity in the world – it reaches 32%. This indicator is 8 times higher than the salinity of the Atlantic Ocean, 7 times higher than the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea, 14.5 times higher than the Black Sea and 40 times higher than the Baltic Sea. This concentration of bromine, chlorine and magnesium salts makes it impossible for any plant or animal organism to exist, hence the name Dead Sea.

This is the deepest basin, the lowest point on the surface of the globe. It is located 405 m below sea level. The amazing nature of these places has no analogues. Truly fantastic landscapes await travelers here. In the west, steep cliffs of red sandstone rise upward, yellowish limestone blocks shade their unusual color, and snow-white salt marshes dazzle under the burning sun. In the evening, golden-lilac twilight falls in the gorge, creating a magnificent background for the unique rocky landscape.

Everyone who has visited the Dead Sea will remember for a lifetime the shock experienced by immersion in water. However, it is difficult to call it an immersion – this is a real attraction that gives the buyer a feeling of weightlessness. The thick, oily, salt-filled water of the Dead Sea literally pushes you to the surface – it is impossible to drown here, but you can, on the contrary, lie on the surface of the water without the slightest difficulty reading a newspaper, or just swing like a float, basking in the generous rays of the Israeli sun.

Holidays at the Dead Sea will be a real pleasure for the whole family. Women will certainly be interested in cosmetics that are produced on the Dead Sea and exported from Israel around the world. Back in the days of Cleopatra, natural mixtures were prepared here that gave the famous Egyptian queen youth and beauty – during excavations in this area, archaeologists discovered a semblance of a cosmetic factory.

And today face, body and hair preparations produced at the enterprises of this region contain natural components that are part of the water and mud of the Dead Sea. Drugs can be bought and taken with you, or you can start using them here, on vacation, using professional advice.

On the basis of these preparations, a variety of procedures are carried out in numerous cosmetology centers. Depending on the type of skin and its individual characteristics, professional cosmetologists will choose the most suitable line of skin care products. These may be preparations based on Dead Sea minerals, preparations with extracts of medicinal plants, a course of aromatherapy and other cosmetic procedures.

Dozens of SPA centers located on the coast will provide guests with a comfortable stay combined with wellness treatments – sea and hydrogen sulfide baths, massage, mud wraps, anti-stress and relaxation programs. The charge of energy and new strength after such a vacation will be enough for everyone who comes here from cold regions and after hard work.

Due to the unusually high degree of evaporation of water, an aerosol layer is constantly located over the Dead Sea region. These aerosols and an additional 400 meters of atmosphere filter and trap the harmful rays of the sun causing burns. And during mild, pleasant winters, and even on hot and dry summers, the ideal conditions for sun exposure are without harm to health.

That is why for many decades, contrary to its name, the Dead Sea gives a full life and health to hundreds of thousands of people. Its salts have healing properties known since ancient times that can cure many ailments, and the climate and geography of these places are such that you can improve your health here almost all year round. At the same time, experts advise choosing a season in accordance with the diagnosis and treatment program. So for the treatment of psoriasis, the season from mid-March to mid-November is considered optimal. Neurodermatitis can be treated here all year round, with the exception of July and August. And vitiligo patients should come from mid-April to mid-October. In winter, from mid-November to early April, it is more preferable to rest for those with diseases of the bronchopulmonary system. Year-round treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system, endocrine system, neurosis, and disorders of the genital area is carried out.

On the Dead Sea, away from the noisy cities, you can enjoy a wonderful, eventful vacation. Diversified sanatoriums and comfortable hotels for every taste and pocket are waiting for you. A magnificent in its diversity Mediterranean cuisine will not leave indifferent neither gourmets nor lovers of simple, wholesome and wholesome food.
