Israel is a small yet extremely diverse Middle Eastern state with a long coastline on the eastern Mediterranean Sea and a rather small window to the Red Sea at the Gulf of Eilat (Aqaba). Israel shares borders with Egypt and the Gaza Strip to the southwest, Jordan and the West Bank to the east, and with Syria and Lebanon to the north.
The West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip were under Israeli de-facto ruling since 1967.
Visit Israel and Enjoy Rich History and Besutiful Views
You don't really need VisitIsrael.com to tell you this country has a richa dn aamzing history. Even though Israel was established, following the Second World War, purposely for the Jewish people, it is considered part of the Holy Land (alongside areas of Jordan, Egypt and the Palestinian Territories). All three monotheistic religions -Judaism, Christianity and Islam have historical roots within the area. Therefore the state of Israel contains a vivacious modern history and culture, based on the varied, immigrant origins of its residents returning from the Jewish Diaspora. These aspects make Israel a captivating destination for many tourists & pilgrims and for those of you who are looking for good deals and cheap flights. This huge mix of culture, not counting the official languages of Hebrew and Arabic, Russian and Yiddish are also spoken by a noteworthy minority of Israelis.
Israel is a highly urbanized and economically developed society and is therefore best divided for the traveler into its main cities and towns, followed by the regions and other sites.
