The Holy City of Jerusalem

Jerusalem. It’s a city that has given me a good dose of religious experiences, history and emotions. It is one of the oldest cities in the World and sacred to all Muslims, Jews and Christians.
I stayed five nights in the citadel hostel, the chepest place in town, yet has the best view and quite an interesting location. It was in the Old City wall where all the bathrooms and bedrooms felt like dug out caves.
Being on the border of the West Bank, Jerusalem was a great base for trips to nearby Palestinian cities. The city also had a lot to offer when it came to nightlife, museums and activities, but I think best of all was the Western Wall, where orthodox Jews were wailing on their prayers. The city also has some quite extensive tunnels that can be explored in a tour well worth it’s five Euro price. The city just has such a rich history, so having a guide taking me around for one and a half hour while explaining passionately made a difference of seeing just the city for what it is today and the city which has blossomed through the last couple of thousand years.
