ISRAEL. Holy Land

This blessed land has everything: warm tropical plains and snowy mountain peaks, “sun-baked” hills and lakes with shiny water.

It seems that here time has stood still between the temples and the dunes because of awe in front of the long history of this land. Like thousands of years ago, during the biblical era, the farmers still cultivate the land, the artisans make their preparations, the fishermen throw their nets into the cool waters of the ​​Sea of Galileewhich flows into the Jordan River which runs through the desert.

Here, the hopes and frustrations of people from around the world and of all religions are gathered: the Holy Land of Judaism –in the majestic Jerusalem, in the Temple Mount –the Muslim mosques, the placeswhere Jesus Christ taught which are invaluable to every Christian – in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher or the Church of the Lord’s Resurrection.
