The Jordan River, in which John the Baptist baptized his cousin Jesus of Nazareth, is a river in Southwest Asia which flows into the Dead Sea. It is considered to be one of the world’s most sacred rivers .
It originates approximately 200 meters above sea level on the slopes of Mt. Hermon, Israel. It ends its course at the lowest spot in the world, the Dead Sea, at 420 meters below sea level. Along its course, the Jordan feeds two lakes: the Hula (now almost completely drained) and the Sea of Galilee. In its course from the Sea of Galilee to the Dead Sea, the Jordan travels a winding 230 kilometers, covering just 105 kilometers in a straight line.

The construction of the new city’s Jewish neighborhoods began in the late 19th century. Some of the neighborhoods have retained their original picturesque charm, and wandering among the houses is a real pleasure.
Young people who like to go out in the evenings will love Jerusalem’s main night life regions: the German Colony, the Ben Yehuda pedestrian mall, Nakhalat Shiv’a, Shlomtsiyon HaMalka Street, and the Russian Compound.

The Sea of Galilee, also Kinneret, Lake of Gennesaret, or Lake Tiberias, is the largest freshwater lake in Israel, and it is approximately 53 km in circumference, about 21 km long, and 13 km wide. The lake has a total area of 166.7 km2 at its fullest, and a maximum depth of approximately 43 m (141 feet).  At levels between 215 metres and 209 metres below sea level,it is the lowest freshwater lake on Earth and the second-lowest lake overall (after the Dead Sea, a saltwater lake).The lake is fed partly by underground springs although its main source is the Jordan River which flows through it from north to south.

Water, sweet or salty, at the hotel or at the nearby beach, and all the wildlife associated with water, is the major attraction of Eilat, naturally.

The resort town on the Red Sea is a fabulous getaway all year round. The sea that is cool for most Israelis even in the summer, is a draw to those used to Atlantic temperatures. The Coral World Underwater Observatory, the Underwater Observatory Marine Park with its famous turtle-nesting exhibit, and the Dolphin Reef are among the many outdoor attractions of this unique city on the sea. A fun moment, while taking a break from the sun and sand, can be had at the Oceanarium, a movie theatre designed to give the guest a sense of “being there,” wet and underwater, by means of a simulation movie, great for family entertainment.
