Not far from Zikhron Yaakov (large settlement) is a park built and named after Baron Rothschild. In the depths of the park is the tomb of the baron and his wife.
Entrance to the park is free. The vast territory of the park is well-groomed and equipped. Walking along the paved paths, it is pleasant to admire a variety of plants: here you will find palm trees, acacia trees, and a huge number of beautiful roses in different shades. The park has many neat lawns and small trimmed bushes, there are small artificial waterfalls, as well as man-made ponds, in which there are a lot of lilies and goldfish.
One part of the park called the “Garden of Smells” is specially equipped for blind people. A large number of medicinal plants grow here, publishing pleasant aromas. Near each plant is a tablet with a description in several languages (including Braille).
In 1882, thanks to Baron Rothschild and his financial support, the town of Zichron Yaakov was founded. He became the first Jewish settlement of modern times. And the name was received in honor of the father of the baron - James. The first Jews who arrived here from Romania settled in the town.
Today, visitors to the city are attracted not so much by history as by “Gan Hadiv” - a huge park located a little distance from Zichron Ya'akov. Baron Rothschild and his wife are buried here.
Ein Hod is a unique place where artists, sculptors, writers, photographers, and other creative professionals live and work. The village was founded in the middle of the last century by Israeli artist Marcel Janco, who was a Dadaist.
Today, Ein Hod is a park complex. The village is home to numerous galleries, the Marcel Janco Museum with its library, antique shops, studios, workshops, and several exhibition halls where regular art exhibitions take place. Throughout the village, visitors come across intricate art objects such as sculptures and mosaics.
