Travel Guide
When we think about Jerusalem, we think about one of the oldest cities in the world. Located within the Judean Mountains in a unique location between the Dead Sea and the Mediterranean, this Middle East city is considered a holy one of the Abrahamic religions. It has always been disputed between Israel and Palestina to be the capital. Nowadays it belongs to Israel, eventhough the situation might be complicated to describe. Also,... when we think about Jerusalem, we see the shiny golden dome “Dome of the Rock”, the big Old Town full of old churches and stone buildings which are just breathetaking. The city was founded as the “City of David” in 1010 BCE, which means that Jewish people have lived there for more than 3.000 years. More than 100 battles have been fought for controling Jerusalem througout the history. It is a walled city, with 34 watchtowers on the walls and 7 gates for traffic. In Jerusalem, there are around 50 Christian churches, 33 Muslim mosques and 300 Jewish synagogues.
