Muslim Quarter, Jerusalem

2.6
#9 of 10 in Neighborhoods in Jerusalem
Roam the maze of ancient streets and alleys in Muslim Quarter, merging thousands of years of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim history. With a population of 22,000 residents and stretching over 31 hectares (76 acres), it is the largest quarter in the city. The temple mound--housing the city's most prominent landmark, the Dome of the Rock--rises above the neighborhood. Its other historic attractions include Roman ruins and Crusader remains, Christian churches, and the Via Dolorosa--the path that Jesus walked on his way to Golgotha. Visit the quarter's bustling market packed with stalls selling spices, textiles, and handicrafts, such as leather goods and embroideries.

    Muslim quarter-the biggest quarter of the old city. Via Dolorosa (the Godfather-the way of Jesus) is almost entirely located in the Muslim quarter. Get here comfortably through the Damascus Gate, once on the tram or bus to them. You can go through the Lion, however, and through any other. The old city is not great! Saturation shopping lavchonkami for every square meter exceed all sorts of imaginable limits. Godfather-path generally solid market! People live here, right above the shops. They are the hosts, and interested in their history only as a source of profit! Stayed here till evening. Pozakryvalis benches, streets almost emptied. It was quiet and calm. Only Arab boys scampered to the sunset.

    Interesting but something unsafe worth a go but has nothing of orignal for those who know Arab countries, except for the incredible via dolorosa.

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.
