Haifa is the only city in Israel where the joyful, family-friendly, kind, and magical holiday of New Year is celebrated on a large scale. In the evening, the main street lights up with thousands of garland lights and Christmas sculptures displayed in open-air cafes, on balconies, and on sidewalks. The city's main Christmas tree shines like a precious gem against the backdrop of the magnificent Baha'i Gardens, illuminated by hundreds of lanterns and lights.
To immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the "Holiday of Holidays," sit in a decorated cafe, smile in response to the smiles of families with children and joyful groups around you, and listen to an interesting guide's story about this beautiful city, you can join us.
We will also visit the Orthodox Church of the Prophet Elijah. Here, parishioners of Slavic, Jewish, and Arab origin come together to pray, united by their faith and respect for the same holy place. One of the common prayers heard in recent years in the church is a prayer for peace on earth.
The Ahmadiyya Mosque in Haifa is located near Haifa, in the small village of Kababir, which has become a leading spiritual and religious center for Ahmadis in the Middle East.
We will also explore the unique Baha'i Gardens (in a panoramic view). Although they were created relatively recently, it does not diminish their beauty. At the center of the gardens is the Baha'i House of Worship, representing a small religious community.

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.
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.
The Orthodox Church of Prophet Elijah on Mount Carmel was built in the past century. On November 14, 1913, the church was solemnly consecrated by Patriarch Damian of Jerusalem.
