Few places in the world boast such a long history and such a rich multiethnic culture as Jerusalem, a city sacred to Jews, Muslims, and Christians.
Step off the beaten path and head to Jewish Quarter and Christian Quarter. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center and Western Wall. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Old City of Jerusalem, make a trip to Jaffa Gate (Bab al-Khalil), get engrossed in the history at Tower of David Museum, and explore the ancient world of Temple Mount.

For photos, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Jerusalem trip itinerary maker app .

Krakow, Poland to Jerusalem is an approximately 9-hour combination of flight, train, and bus. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Krakow to Jerusalem. When traveling from Krakow in February, plan for much hotter days in Jerusalem, with highs around 18°C, while nights are a bit warmer with lows around 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Wed) early enough to catcht the bus to Ein Gedi.
