Jerusalem is one of the most beautiful and special cities in Israel. The Old City of Jerusalem is where the city existed about 2,000 years ago and where all the people of Jerusalem lived until they started building outside the Old City walls in the 1860s. The Old City of Jerusalem is holy to the three monotheistic religions and is full of archeological and historical points, which are very fascinating to see!
