Russian Compound & Jaffa Rd Walking Tours


This week's walking tours in English are: 


The Russian Compound – Tuesday, February 18, 2020

Novoi Yerusalima (Russian for New Jerusalem) or el-Moscoobiyya (Arabic) was one of the first compounds built outside the Old City walls to house the tens of thousands of religious pilgrims who arrived annually, each with their own story. We will explore this city within a city which for years dominated the city skyline, and also see the Finger of Og, Ethiopian royalty buildings and end at the Museum of the Underground Prisoners (entrance fee).

Meet at the entrance to the main post office on Jaffa Rd (near Safra Sq) at 10:00am. The tour is about two hours.

60 NIS/person. RSVP with guide Miriam Simon 054-521-6933. www.miriamsafiratours.com

Jaffa Rd – Thursday, February 20, 2020

Explore Jerusalem's main artery to the coast for centuries, an Ottoman road with British influences. Different neighborhoods were built off this road, many events happened in different buildings and many ghosts lived here too.

Meet at the entrance to the main post office on Jaffa Rd (near Safra Sq) at 10:00am. The tour is about 2.5 hours.

60 NIS/person. RSVP with guide Miriam Simon 054-521-6933. www.miriamsafiratours.com
