Photo impression Israel

Remains of Capernaum synagogue
It is written about Jesus that He didn't stay in Nazareth, but went to live in Capernaum (Kfar Nahum in Hebrew) (Matthew 4:13). Today there is not much left of that old town on the shores of the Sea of Gallilee, but the old synagogue is certainly worth a visit. It still breathes the atmosphere of biblical times.
Arbel National Park
Arbel National Park was a pleasant surprise. No crowds here, just tranquility and spectacular views of the Tiberias area.
Greek Orthodox church Capernaum
As we were strolling along the shoreline of the Sea of Gallilee, we stumbled upon this picturesque Greek church near Capernaum. Tranquility, beautiful gardens and grand views of the lake... awesome!
