Tirat Zvi, Israel

From series “The Hottest Places in the World”
Year: 1937. Population (attendance): 700.

Religious Kibbutz Tirat Zvi is situated in Israel, on the vast territory of the Beit She'an Valley. Temperature record was placed there in 1942; in the midst of hot summer air warmed up to 53.9°C. Despite these natural anomalies, people have been living in the settlement for hundreds of years and have learned to escape from a perilous heat. Their homes are equipped with tents, in the shade of which it’s always possible to shelter from the hot sun. Ponds situated around the settlement also help local residents.

Tirat Zvi, Israel According to the latest census, at least 700 people live in kibbutz. The settlement was founded relatively recently, in 1937. Currently Tirat Zvi is one of the nation's largest mass production centers, as well as a leader in production dates. Arid climate is ideal for growing lulav; this plant has long been used during religious holiday of Sukkot. Plant is collected in spring, while the holiday is in autumn. Local experts together with scientists of Volcani Institute developed a special technology to save this unique plant; thanks to that lulav can be preserved for several months.

Kibbutz was named in honor of Rabbi Zvi Hirsch Kalisher; its name literally translates as ‘Zvi Fortress.’ The settlement is a really saving fortress for hundreds of local residents. Today, this sultry Israel city practically doesn’t differ from the way of life in other localities of the country. Next - Rub al-Khali

Top destination around Tirat Zvi - Nazareth


Nazareth is considered a city in which Christ spent his childhood. This is a major center of pilgrimage, which attracts visitors primarily by its history and religious landmarks.

The Temple of the Annunciation built in 1969 is one of the most important religious places of interest. The lower level of the Temple is a grotto where once lived Virgin Mary. The interior simply strikes visitors by its elegance and refinement; here you will see ceramic bas-reliefs, fine mosaics, and beautiful frescoes. In close proximity to this church is located one more remarkable building - the church of the Archangel Gabriel. The building of this church took place in the 17th century. This religious facility is as good as the temple in terms of beauty and grandeur.

During the preparation for the celebration of the 2000th anniversary of Christianity, the historic region of Nazareth was modified heavily. First of all, it was turned into a pedestrian zone and all traffic was completely blocked. In addition to this was developed a new system of sightseeing and pilgrimage routes. While walking along beautiful streets of Nazareth, you can enjoy the panorama of the city and observe its main sights.
