Christians, Jews and Muslims consider Israel to be the Bible’s Holy Land. Over 8 million people live in Israel, approximately 75% of which are Jewish, 18% are Muslim and only 2% are Christian. In terms of industry and economy, Israel is one of the most developed countries in the Middle East and Southwest Asia, mostly due to its highly educated population.
Jerusalem was proclaimed as the capital of this Middle Eastern country (although this has not been recognised internationally), and it is where the most sacred sites are located. The Sea of Galilee, the historic Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Yad Vashem and the Tower of David are some of the most-visited landmarks in Israel.
Other major cities are Haifa and Tel Aviv, the country’s financial and technological hub, also known for its beaches. Bathed by the Mediterranean Sea, this country has a temperate climate, although the southern and eastern desert areas are hot and dry.
