The City of David.
The history of the City of David began more than 3,000 years ago when King David left the city of Hebron in order to move to a small town on the top of the hill, now known as Jerusalem, and turn it into the united capital of all the tribes of Israel. After years, the son of David, Solomon, built near the City of David The first temple on the top of Mount Moria - in the place where Abraham at his time was going to sacrifice his Isaac son to the Lord. So the summit of the hill became one of the most important places in the world.

The history of the City of David continues today. In the thickness of the land of the City of David, some of the most exciting finds of the ancient world are revealed. On the surface of the same city is full of life - the Tourist Center invites numerous visitors to an unforgettable tour of the places where many of the biblical legends were written.

The tour of the City of David begins with a spectacular panorama that returns the visitor to 3.800 years ago, at the time of the forefather Abraham, when the foundations of the city were laid. Soon after, the path leads to the ground, where the most recent archaeological excavations are conducted. Here, with the knowledge of the recently excavated fortresses and passages, the siege and capture by David of the ancient city of the Jebusites come to life in the imagination of visitors, as described in the Bible, in the 2nd Book of Samuel (2 Kings). The underground excursion ends at the Gihon Key, which was the most important water source of Jerusalem for more than a thousand years - here, according to the description in the Book of Kings, Solomon was anointed for the kingdom. Visitors from among more adventurous people can arm themselves with lanterns and travel along the source through a tunnel dug 2,700 years ago under King Hezekiah (Hezekiah) - one of the wonders of the engineering art of antiquity.

On a tour of the City of David, the visitor meets face to face with Biblical characters and places. Thus, it becomes the only place on the planet where the only required guidebook is the Bible itself.
