Israel capital gives tourists knights to remember

2nd Oct 2013

Travellers on city breaks to Israel this month are being made an offer that looks like something straight out of a Dr Who episode.

They can now travel back through time to Jerusalem in the Middle Ages as part of one of the country's most innovative festivals and events of recent times - without boarding a TARDIS.

Every Thursday Old City Knights will give tourists to Jerusalem the chance of an enchanted autumn experience in the spirit of the Middle Ages.

Travellers can enjoy heroes of the Middle Ages, including knights, dragons, kings, princesses, magicians, troubadours, court jesters, and pedlars roaming in the Old City's picturesque alleys.

The Middle Ages are brought to life by costumed characters, dance, acrobatics, theatre performances and sounds and chants of a long gone era.

Knights and dragons is this year's theme.

The whole Old City area will be awash with kings, princesses, knights and dragons in performances of battle scenes between knights and fire-breathing dragons - as well as knights of the night defending Jerusalem from the Knights of Hell.

This year's festival takes place in collaboration with artists from the Venice Festival, creating a colourful experience in the spirit of the authentic Knights of the era and original shows in a medieval atmosphere.

Old City Knights is brought to you by the Jerusalem Development Authority, the Prime Minister's Office, the Jerusalem Municipality, and Ariel.

Jerusalem, Israel's capital, gives holidaymakers a unique religious and spiritual experience, rich history, tourist attractions and a calendar full of cultural events and festivals to enhance their journey.

Several of the annual festivals and events attract the participation of internationally-acclaimed stars, taking place against the breath-taking backdrop of the ancient city walls.

All year round Jerusalem offers must-see attractions, such as the Western Wall, the Dome of the Rock, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Jordan River, the Sea of Galilee and the mountain fortress of Masada.
