Немецкая колония (или немецкое поселение) в Хайфе 
Она была основана в 1868 г. членами общества темплеров, которые купили землю за пределами тогдашней Хайфы специально для того, чтобы основать здесь общину.
В настоящее время немецкая колония, ставшая городским кварталом, превратилась в излюбленное место отдыха и прогулок как для горожан, так и для гостей Хайфы. Здесь их ждут невысокие каменные постройки, уютные дворики, цитрусовые деревца. Множество оригинальных домов было отреставрировано в конце 20 века, а главная улица Бен-Гуриона превращена в широкий променад. Вокруг расположена масса кофеен и ресторанов, причём многие из них вполне тянут на европейский первый класс.

Монастырь Стелла Марис (монастырь Ордена святых кармелитов)
История монастыря берет свое начало с XI в, когда группы религиозных отшельников начали заселение пещер этого района в подражание пророку Илии. В течение 7 лет начиная с 1767 года, член Ордена брат Джамбатиста Касини построил большую церковь и монастырь, которая была серьезно повреждена во время Наполеоновской компании и в последствии полностью разрушена. 
Нынешний монастырь и церковь были построены по распоряжению Касини и начала функционировать в 1836 г.
Для всего мира монастырь является центром кармелитской духовности. Главная часть монастырского комплекса- собор, получивший звание «Церкви-матери» и статус мирового центра кармелитского ордена.

It is the city, within the walls of which is still heard the clang of swords and armor of the crusaders and war cries calling for battle. Acre is saturated with history and time has no power over this place. Sometimes it seems that it is moving perfectly in a chaotic direction. Monuments of the past and present mixed together here, but they appeared far from architectural badness, on the contrary brought a special atmosphere.
There is an ancient port, and fortresses of the crusaders, and Turkish baths (hamams), mosques and even a magical garden built during the crusaders. Among all the historical diversity it is difficult to single out one thing.: the city keeps the secret of the Templars, it hosted Napoleon, the legendary king Richard the Lionheart, and despite all the warriors, rulers and conquerors, Acre has never interrupted its settlement for more than five millennia and is one of the oldest cities in the world.

Stella Maris Monastery

The monastery was built in the second half of the 18th century. During the period of the Napoleonic wars, the church was seriously damaged, and in the first half of the 19th century, the Turks wiped off its last remnants from the face of the earth. But a decade later, people began the reconstruction of the monastery and it opened its doors in 1836 on the same place. In the 20th century, it was in turn occupied by British and Israeli troops, but nowadays the monastery and the church recovered their original meaning. Today, the Stella Maris Cathedral is considered being the main spiritual center for the Carmelites of the whole world.

German colony in Haifa

The quarter, which in Hebrew is called “Moshava Germanit”, was built about 150 years ago by protestant Templars, who moved from Germany to Palestine. The devout Germans changed their native places for the semi-wild Middle East for a certain reason. With their presence and creative hard work on the Promised Land, they expected to speed up the second coming of Christ. Of course, that did not work out. But Haifa obviously benefited from the German "expedition" – hear appeared one of the most comfortable urban areas with gingerbread houses, wine cellars and good hookahs. Perhaps this is the best place in the whole city for walking and shopping.


Try to describe Haifa in a few words, and... and you will fail. You can travel to this city alone or with the family. It does not matter how old you are, what kind of relaxation you prefer and what impressions you long for. No one will feel bored here. No wonder they say that "Haifa is full of high".

Founded in a time before remembering and known since the Roman era, today's Haifa is a metropolis. It proudly bears two honorary titles: the country's main port and northern capital.

There are two must see objects in the city – small and huge one. The first is the underground funicular train. The tiniest in the world! It has a poetic name – "Carmelit." All because the train rolls through the tunnel, penetrating the Mount Carmel.


The second is a huge Bahai temple, the domes of which can be seen from everywhere in the city, and its gardens. Baha'i faith is one of the world’s youngest monotheistic religions.
