Language and Religion


With a population of 7.4 million, Israel is the only world’s only primarily Jewish state. The country has two official languages: Hebrew and Arabic.

A Varied Landscape


Israel is a relatively small country, with an area of almost 8,400 square miles or almost 22 thousand square kilometers. Despite this fact, its land features a varied landscape – with coastal plains, highlands and desert making up the topography.

Climate and Weather


Summers in Israel are long, dry and hot, while winters are rainy, cool and short. This Mediterranean climate is partly due to its location between the Sahara and Arabian deserts. The climate varies throughout the country, however, with the hilly regions featuring cooler and rainier weather.

Historical Tourism


Tourism in Israel is becoming more popular, as it had been limited in the past due to local conflicts. Visitors are drawn to the country’s vast collection of religious, historical and archaeological sites. For example, Nazareth is a popular Christian pilgrimage site, while the Western Wall is important to the Jewish faith.

Israel may be relatively small, but it is a country filled with culture and history.
