Jerusalem is not just historic center of ancient Judea. It has long lost its administrative importance (the capital of modern Israel, as you know, is in tel Aviv), Jerusalem, nevertheless, retained the status of a spiritual center for Jews and Christians and Muslims. It is clear that the pilgrims from around the world come to visit Jerusalem at all”, and specific places associated with various religions. As a rule, it organizes special religious tours with a tight sightseeing program. Those who come to Jerusalem for educational purposes, often choose just a leisurely stroll around the Old town.
Not only the Old Town is a monument under the open sky: by law every building in Jerusalem must be at least partially lined with Jerusalem stone. This creates a special architectural appearance of the city and inexplicable but compelling atmosphere.
