Sea pearls of Israel: the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean
Back in the days of the Jewish king Herod the Great, Caesarea was built in honor of the Roman emperor Octavian Augustus, Caesar. From here the city got its name.
The city occupied an important position, here was the Roman prosecutor's office and the main base of the Roman legion in Judea.
Today, Caesarea attracts tourists, first of all, of course, with its ancient artifacts, buildings and ruins. The historical and archaeological park of the same name, which is located off the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, will help you to enjoy and feel the New Testament atmosphere of these places. You will have the opportunity to contemplate the luxury and wealth in which these places were once buried: the amphitheater of King Herod, which has not lost its original beauty, is still used today; walks around the sights of the “Palace on the Reef”, along the remains of Roman and Byzantine streets, where houses with frescoes on the floors have been preserved, the aqueduct will surprise and at the same time give you the opportunity to touch the secrets of the “rich” life of the kings.
Then we will drive to Haifa and see the unique Bahai Gardens. They were created quite recently, but this does not spoil their beauty at all. In the center there is a Bahá'í temple - representatives of a small religious denomination. It is worth making sure in advance that your clothes are appropriate for the occasion - visiting a religious shrine.
And the crown of our excursion is Akko, where the crusaders lived in the distant years! We will explore the old city, the ancient port, the oriental bazaar ... Traces of the former greatness of the famous warriors.
The middle platform of the Bahai Gardens is available for visiting.
Entrance ticket to the national park of Caesarea.

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.
Caesarea was built by the Jewish king Herod the Great, in honor of the Roman Caesar Octavian Augustus. From here the city got its name.
The city occupied an important position. Here was the Roman prosecutor's office and the main base of the Roman legion in Judea.
Today Caesarea attracts tourists, first of all, of course, for its ancient artifacts, buildings and ruins. Artifacts found during excavations will give an opportunity to touch the secrets of the "rich" life of the Roman nobility and ..... how can it be without Pontius Pilate?
The spiritual center on Mount Carmel in Haifa is one of the holiest places for Baha'i practitioners, the youngest monotheistic religion in the world. The center includes a temple, a tomb where the remains of the Bab, the ancestor of the faith, and famous gardens rest.
The tomb is an impressive building crowned by a gilded dome. It is equipped with a backlight. Thanks to her, the dome is illuminated at night, but so that it seems as if the source of radiance is inside it.
To get to the tomb, the guest have to go through the gardens that terraces cover the slope of Mount Carmel. There are twelve in all. Seeing this incredible work of human hands, you will understand why the gardens are called the eighth wonder of the world. The local collection contains about 450 species of various plants, among which there are unique flowers. Shrubs are sheared, and you probably will not find lawns more even and greener in the city. Add to this the fountains - isn't it awesome? Bahai Gardens is a monument not only to faith and its founder, but also to the harmony and great taste of architects.
Супер! Даже не ожидала, что настолько понравится! Гидом был Георгий, эрудированный, с потрясающим чувством юмора!
