Jerusalem is a city known all around the world, its religious background means that it is truly iconic for a lot of reasons, but while you may think of this as an ancient part of the world, it has inevitably been modernized and has some beautiful architecture and great places to hang out, as well as modern areas such as shopping centers, but this city has truly kept its authenticity.
If you are religious, or even if you are interested in history, there are so many places to visit with religious connotations and the trips people take to Jerusalem can end up being quite spiritual and fuel the fire for historians and photographers to take pictures of some of the amazing historical areas such as where Jesus was crucified or where the prophet muhammad ascended.
It doesn’t matter if you aren’t religious, Jerusalem is still an amazing area, split into an old town and new town area, in the old town there are some amazing churches and ancient architecture, and in the modern area there is more what you would expect from a modern city with everything you need, some very fancy restaurants (food is intriguing due to the geographical setting of Jerusalem), amazing shops to explore and much more. The city has been brought into the 21st century so you can get the best of both worlds.
There is so much that it is impossible to go through in one short article, and there are whole websites dedicated to what Jerusalem has to offer such as this Jerusalem Visitor Guide which shows all of the best areas, things to do and amazing history of the city.
