Jerusalem on Ice

By Linda Tancs

Jerusalem is celebrating its first ever ice festival from 6 March to 30 April at the Old Railway Station.   There you’ll enjoy sculptures of many of the city’s tourist sites, such as Jaffa Gate, the Tower of David, the Israel Museum, and the new Jerusalem Light Rail.  A family friendly event, the festival includes an ice skating rink.  Adults can enjoy a drink at the ice bar.  If you’re wondering how an event such as this fares well in the glorious Mediterranean sun, worry not.  The area is artificially cooled to about -10 degrees Celsius!
