The amazing people in this cemetery makes it a fascinating walk. You experience the political history of Israel just walking through. The respect for the dead and for the sacrifice they made is evident.

Beautifully maintained cemetery organised by wars plus graves / memorials to Israel leaders,paratroopers who died saving Jews in WW2, British army Jewish units, Polish army, lost a sea memorial and, of course, Herzl and his family - you need to spend a few hours there. Some of the graves have photos and small write ups to read about the heroism... More

Interesting story of Theodore Herzl and his life. His personal struggles in promoting his vision for the nation of Israel. He truly is the George Washington for Israel.

We took this tour and absolutely delighted we did . You get a complete insight into how the Zionist movement began and the full history of the state .There is a lot of information given in an informative and precise way. The Knesset is right near buy so it's definitely worth tying in the two attractions together.
