    Location of decisions of the Jewish people (and their idiosyncrasies ....) in a modern building of a modern country and still under construction. ... It's worth just visiting the Menorah (7 large chandelier arms) with all the symbolism of their bas-reliefs and reporting much of the history of this people over time and your relationship with a single God and the people around them. ... Actually whenever I visit Israel keep thinking on the main commandment-love God above all things and to the neighbor as yourself ... this second part is very difficult to do as it gives a lot of work and things get complicated.

    Pretty easy to get a certification on site. You can do in the same geographical environment: the supreme Court of justice and the Museum of Jerusalem. A "classic" but Israel Parliament gives a special connotation

    If you're lucky enough to get there-never give up. You will be surprised how much everything is simple. Everything except security, probably.

    Free informative tour. I have not yet managed to find time to go during a session of Knesset. Got to see the plenum and Ulam Yerushalayim (Lit. 'Hall of Jerusalem,' one of the cabinet meeting rooms). Make sure to bring a passport if you aren't a citizen otherwise they won't let you in.

    Corrupted place with politicians that only think about themselves(like all politicians). Root of inequality and racism in Israel Palestine. Nevertheless nice building.

    Very cool building. I was fortunate enough to get a tour and sit in on some meetings.

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.
