Red Sea, beautiful Eilat

And yet it came, the day of departure to Moscow! But I really wanted to stay in Eilat, even for at least a week.

The first minutes after arriving at this Israeli resort are somewhat reminiscent of a contrast shower: cold – hot, cold – hot. Cold (relatively cool cabin of the airbus) – hot (heated air of the runway) – cold (air-conditioned interior of a comfortable bus) – hot (short run from the bus step to the hotel door) – cold (phew, again – air conditioning, cool …).

The pianist in the lobby rapturously raises “Black Eyes” and “Kalinka.” Yes, thoroughly prepared for the arrival of guests from Russia in Eilat. And they decided to show our group, composed of Moscow journalists and employees of the travel agency “INTERGARANT”, as they say, “goods face.” Continue reading

Israel (and vicinity)

You can fly there for less than $ 400. A charter to Cyprus is about 200. The ferry Limassol – Haifa – $ 60. Prices, respectively, round-trip. In winter, charters need to be sought both in St. Petersburg and in Kiev, somewhere, yes there are. Nevertheless, if you fly even in the winter with Aeroflot, then: from November 1, a winter discount of about 20% is valid. And in general there are all sorts of Pecs, apexes, youngsters, in a word, in $ 400, you can get everything done.

By the way, in November there are still full buzz in terms of climate, and in terms of prices, say, in Cyprus, too. It should be borne in mind that the ferry from Limassol goes only once a week, and most likely you will have to turn around somewhere in Cyprus for a few days, which in itself is a great pleasure. At this time of the year you can easily find an overnight stay for $ 5 from the bow (in the private sector), and if there isn’t even this money, sleep on the beach on trestle beds, it’s easy there. Imagine the dawn over the Mediterranean! Continue reading

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.

Dead Sea Dead Sea 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. Continue reading
