Renting In Israel

21

March

While far from the biggest country and certainly one that is often misunderstood, Israel has emerged as a viable vacation spot in recent years and it has only been lately that so many people have seen how attractive it can be to foreign visitors and this has meant that a great number of holidaymakers have decided that they would like to come back to the country but on a more permanent basis in that they look for Israel holiday apartments where they can stay for a much longer period. Indeed, the housing market in the country is attractive and there are many places that you can rent an apartment to use as your holiday home.
What you need to do is hire the services of a local estate agent and they have become much more experiences in recent years with dealing with foreign clients so they can advise and assist you on a whole range of matters such as the best places to rent a property from, finding one in your price range and also deal with the legal and tax issues that can arise as well; all of this is best left to them as doing it yourself will only cause problems.
Indeed, the country benefits from having some great weather and it has a majestic coastline that is enjoyed both by locals and holidaymakers too. The Black Sea is, of course, one of the highlights and people come from all over the world to enjoy it while Tel Aviv itself is a really booming city that enjoys a healthy mix of nightlife and quiet locations for everyone to enjoy. Renting a holiday apartment in Israel could be one of the best moves you make and open up a country to you that is not often seen as a tourist destination for many.

Israel-Religious and Arts Capital

January

Travelers to Israel will find a country preserving its historical, religious, and cultural roots, while, at the same time, building for the future, embracing modernity, economics, style, and most of all, fun!

Jerusalem is home to three of the world’s greatest religions, with about 1/3 of the world’s population regarding it as a holy city. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all claim sacred places within the city, and the mix has Wailing Wall and Al Aqsa Mosqueproduced some of the most beautiful architecture, shrines, and buildings that the world has to offer, but it has also produced the friction and fighting that has always plagued the city, as well as humanity in general. Jewish, Christian, and Muslim pilgrims from all over the world travel to Jerusalem to pray, meditate, and study in the 5,000 year old city. In fact, a visit to the district, known as the Old City, reveals many of Jerusalem’s most cherished places, such as the Temple Mount. All three religions claim parts of the Temple Mount as their own holy places. For the Jews, it the most holy place for their religion, seen as the place where the world was created, and also containing the Western (or Wailing) Wall, where Jews pray and leave written prayers for God, and also as the place where Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son, Isaac, to God. For the Muslims, the Temple Mount is regarded as the third holiest site in Islam, after Mecca and Medina. Since the shrine was built by David and Solomon, and these two are regarded as prophets in Islam, it is highly regarded that religion as well. It also is a place where Mohammad arrived on a winged horse after visiting heaven. For Christians, the place is not as important as a shrine or temple as it is to the Muslims and Jews, but more as the historical place where Jesus prayed and chased off the money changers.

The Old City is just one square kilometer, but contains as many religious and historical sites as anywhere in the world. The rest of Jerusalem is full of museums and archaeological discoveries as well.

Tel Aviv is everything that Jerusalem isn’t (but that’s not a bd thing), and demonstrates the Israeli vision for the future in its glass and steel skyscrapers, funky Art Deco neighborhoods, and clubs, discos, beaches, and dedication to business. If Jerusalem is the spiritual and religious capital of the country, then Tel Aviv is certainly the commercial, artistic, and cosmopolitan heart of Israel. Places that have beaches nearby are typically fun places, and Tel Aviv’s western beaches are gorgeous and happening. Whether it’s taking the family out for a day, looking for someone of the opposite sex, or just having a relaxing bite to eat at a café, Tel Aviv’s beaches offer a respite from the hassles of the big city. Tel Aviv is the Israeli center for music, galleries, and the performing arts. Because the weather is good year-round, a number of festivals, concerts, and outdoor events can normally be found. Whether jazz, electronic music, or more traditional folk music is your thing, Tel Aviv provides plenty of opportunities to enjoy a show either outside, or in one of the city’s theater, or performing arts venues.

Traveling to Israel, visitors will find a country with a deep historical and religious history, which billions of people respect and worship. The country also is building for the future, and offers lots of chances to enjoy all the benefits that the modern world provides as well.
