  • The Russian Provoslavic Church of Mary Magdalene on Mount of Olives is one of the most beautiful churces building in Israel(!)/ It houses the tomb of a Russian Princess, and argues to hold some sanctity by being over the path Jesus walkes when stayin in Bethany. It is open only twice a week, for a few hours, but is well worth the effort!
