There is no need to say a lot about Jerusalem … it’s always worth a trip. Enjoy the unique atmosphere of this city from your terrace, the charming surroundings of Old-Talpiot when walking through the nearby Haas Tayelet Park, the many historic sites and especially the Old City. It’s here that many cultures of old and modern civilizations meet. The Old City is divided into the Jewish, the Christian, the Armenian and the Muslim quarter, all surrounded by a wall.
From 1948 to 1967, Jerusalem was a divided city. The Western part was controlled by Israel, the Eastern part with the Old City by Jordan. The border to Jordania passed right across the street from your apartment. During the 6-day-war in 1967, Israel conquered the Eastern part of the city vis-à-vis from the apartment. Since then, all of Jerusalem is controlled by Israel.
