My trip to one of oldest cities in the world ended definitely too quickly. It was beautiful day when I woke up in Jerusalem and I had only couple of hours to see as much I could of this amazing, incredible city. I would not be myself if I don’t documented this awesome views on pictures.

Around 7 o’clock in the morning I was already next to the Wailing Wall holding my card with a request. Request, not a wish – our tour guide rightly pointed out.
In Israel you can build all shapes of buildings – the only requirement is that all of them must have a sandstone facade. That mineral makes up that the walls do not heat. And sandstone rocks are everywhere in Israel, so it’s also economically smart solution.
Jerusalem is a holy place for three very old religions: Christianity, Islam and Judaism. You could see it everywhere.

Not many moments for resting. All day was a race against time, I wanted to feel and see as much of the city as I could.
Golgotha hill now is placed in the basilica of the Holy Sepulchre. Around it are narrow streets with lots of stalls and closed courtyards.

Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre. What differ it from other European basilicas are the colorful lamps hanging in many places of the temple. Because of them surroundings looks mysterious and beautiful.
