Ashdod has been a major port since before the existence of Israel. Modern Ashdod was established in 1956. It is known as a historical, and modern, port. Though, most travelers will know it for its white-sand beaches and captivating culture. Today’s 60-Second Geography, thanks to Celestyal Cruises, will cover Ashdod and nearby cities; focusing on the best of Israel’s travel spots.

 

  • Though modern Ashdod was established in 1956, there are mentions of its existence in documents dating back to 17th century BCE. The port has been settled by Phillistines, Israelites, Greek colonists, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Crusaders, and Ottoman Turks. Ashdod now covers what used to be two town, one on the coast and the other inland. Ahdod is small compared to other Israeli cities, but this doesn’t hinder its charm. Almost 6 miles of coast along the Meditarranean lets the traveler relax in style. The Ashdod Museum of Art, with its glass pyramid that is reminiscent of the Louvre, can be leisurely walked to see the arts of Israel. Not as crowded as Tel Aviv, the traveler will get to enjoy the city and beach without navigating through masses of tourists.

  • Meaning ‘Hill of Spring’ in Hebrew, Tel Aviv is the second most populous city in Israel. Like Ashdod, it has miles of beaches for the traveler to enjoy. However, Tel Aviv has much more culture and events to experience. The cosmopolitan feel of the city can be felt throughout the streets along the coast and more inland. Secluded art alleys display local artists’ work, while the Tel Aviv Museum of Art has great works by international artists. White City, the center of Tel Aviv, is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site for the largest collection of Bauhaus-style houses. This architectural style was carried to Israel by German-Jewish architects who fled Nazi persecution in the 1930’s. Tel Aviv is also well-known for its nightclub and partying scene, for those who wish to carpe noctum.

  •  Though it is not located on the coast like Ashdod and Tel Aviv, the traveler will take just as many memories away from Jerusalem as the others – if not more. Jerusalem is home to its Old City, which has been the central point of the Abrahamic religions throughout history. Muslims, Christians, and Jews visit the city to pay homage to their deities and prophets in this ancient part of the city. The traveler will be awash in new experiences as many cultures mix throughout the city. Travelers can vist the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, with its magnificent arches and depictions of Crusader crosses; the Western Wall, where believers lay-hands on 2,000 as they pray; and Temple Mount, an ornate and ancient temple thought to be First Temple in the Bible. Jerusalem has not changed much with time, so the traveler may experience the past as it was.
