Israel Travel Guide

Israel is a small yet diverse Middle Eastern country with a long coastline on the eastern Mediterranean Sea and a small window on the Red Sea at the Gulf of Eilat (Aqaba). Israel is bordered by Egypt and the Gaza Strip to the southwest, by Jordan and the West Bank to the east, and by Syria and Lebanon to the north. It shares borders to the Jordan River and the Dead Sea with the West Bank and Jordan.

Israel is a destination with something for everyone, where you can go from the snowy heights of Mount Hermon to the Judean Desert and the saltiest sea on earth, the Dead Sea, while visiting ancient biblical cities, covered markets and a high–rise metropolis on the way.

Today, Israel is a highly urbanized and economically developed society. However, Israel has a rich history; the age of most of its cities is counted not in decades or in centuries, but in millennia. The ingenuity and complexity of some of Israels historical gems have won them a place on the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage List. And without a doubt, Jerusalem is an incomparable highlight that is both historical and spiritual and a must do for all visitors to Israel.

Israel is considered part of the Holy Land (together with areas of Jordan, Egypt and the Palestinian Territories). The three major monotheistic religions –Judaism, Christianity, and Islam– all have historical ties to the region. Israel thus contains a vibrant modern history and culture, based in part on the diverse, immigrant origins of its inhabitants returning from the Jewish Diaspora. These aspects make Israel a fascinating destination for many travellers and pilgrims. As a result of this vast mix of culture, in addition to the official languages of Hebrew and Arabic, Russian and Yiddish are also spoken by a significant minority of Israelis. English in many ways acts as second language.

Climate

Summer in Israel is very hot, the coastal areas are humid as well as hot, and the landscapes are parched brown since it almost never rains in summer. The other three seasons, in contrast, have absolutely beautiful weather. In spring and autumn the temperature is near–perfect every day and nearly all days are sunny (the ancient Jewish pilgrimage holidays were scheduled in autumn and spring to take advantage of this weather). Winter is a mixture of cold rainy days and cool, sunny days which are great for hiking and touring.
