Israel Flights GuideIsrael, known to many as the Jewish State, and established in 1948 in the wake of World War II is home to many internationally famous, often religious sites. The Old City of Jerusalem itself, for example, contains the Wailing Wall, the Dome of the Rock, and The Church of the Holy Sepulcher; important religions sites for Jews, Muslims and Christians, respectively. Other important sites include the Sea of Galilee, The Dead Sea and the capital city of Tel Aviv.
Though many Israelis consider the Holy City of Jerusalem to be the capital, vibrant and beachy Tel Aviv is the internationally recognized capital city. Both places are full of historical significance, though Jerusalem is known as the religious center of the country and Tel Aviv is considered a more modern, metropolitan city, known for its beaches, affluence, and even thriving gay community. Ben Gurion Airport, in Tel Aviv, is the most popular airport, particularly for international flights, though some international flights are routed through Eliat-Ramon, located further south of the country. There are in fact several International Airports located in Southern Eliat, though most are considered minor and the bulk of international travel, especially from outside the Middle East, comes from Ben Gurion in Tel Aviv.
parts of Israel, such as Tel Aviv and other coastal areas, are famous for having a Mediterranean climate, featuring warm summers and incredibly mild winters. However, the Southern region of the country is considered a desert, and the summer weather can be incredibly hot. Many areas in the North are mountainous and feature wetter and cooler weather.
