Russian Museum Jericho, Jericho

(4.5/5 based on a few reviews on the web)
Russian Museum Jericho preserves the little-known history of the Russian community in the Holy Land. Inspired by Byzantine architecture, the structure features commanding domes and columns and sits on land once owned by Russian tsars. The museum's star attraction are Byzantine-era mosaics, but many people come to see the lush citrus garden and centuries-old sycamore tree allegedly featured in a story from the Bible. By using our Jericho travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Russian Museum Jericho and other attractions in Jericho.
