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. The demand in the first weeks of operation turned out to be so great that the frequency of movement was immediately increased, according to the correspondent. Travel.ru.

The project is funded by the municipalities of Tel Aviv, Givatayim, Kiryat Ono and Ramat Hasharon. Six routes were laid by winding routes in these areas, each of which passes through the center of Tel Aviv. In total, 526 stops are served. The organizers of the scheme said they tried to get routes to beaches and entertainment venues, which are in great demand on Shabbat. In addition, routes avoid areas with a significant share of religious residents who do not approve of Saturday transportation. Continue reading

Living water of the Dead Sea

It was the end of January, but the water temperature turned out to be quite acceptable: not that warm, but, as they say in such cases, invigorating. I chuckled cheerfully, dived and made a few energetic strokes. The punishment immediately followed: I was thrown to the surface and turned over like a kayak controlled by an inept hand, and my eyes hurt, as if they had been carried out with sandpaper.

It seems to me that with certain skills and hard training, you can learn how to take a couple of steps along the surface of the Dead Sea with a running start. Continue reading

A walk through the city of the Crusaders

Today, Acre is a very vibrant city, in the east is vain and colorful. This is especially noticeable in the narrow streets of the old city, in the bazaar and near the port. A tourist should tune in advance to the fact that in the historical center he will not find a tinted tourist area with neat signs at ancient monuments. Ordinary people live in the old center, mainly Arabs, and many houses are built literally on the remains of the former city.

In fact, Acre consists of several cities at once, sprouted one into another, you know, like a Russian nesting doll: removed the cap, and there is another doll with a new face, and each next with its own character. Such is Acre. Continue reading
