  • Beautiful dome, shining gold in the sun, visible from far away. Reminded me of Russian Orthodox churches I saw in Moscov.
  • Where Mary of Magdala saw Jesus being arrested in the garden below. Whote Russians. XIXth c. paintings. Beautiful icons and precious relics, like the bodies of archduchess Elisabetha Fedorovna and her servant, martyred by the Bolsheviks and brought back through Siberia.
  • Visiting hours: Tue, Thu 10-12, and that's it!
  • Every knee shall Bow every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord
  • Very beautiful place

Where to stay in Jerusalem

Although it lacks a big selection of mid-range options, Jerusalem provides plenty of choices in the top-end hotel category. The Old City contains the bulk of Jerusalem's small hotels, inexpensive hostels, and religious hospices, all of which appeal to budget-conscious travelers. West Jerusalem offers additional options in the form of guesthouses and bigger hotels, some of which boast five-star ratings. If you just need a bed, consider a youth hostel, where you can choose between private and common rooms with Wi-Fi included.
