When describing the diverse historic landmarks of Eilat, Massada National Park and the fortress with the same name, which is located nearby, should be mentioned first. Built several hundred years ago, the fortress had to endure many challenges. It’s a miracle that it has managed to retain its original look and design. These days, the fortress is a regular venue for various military ceremonies. Needless to say, it’s a popular landmark that attracts all tourists who want to learn more about the history of the town. As the fortress is built on a hill, it is also a fantastic spot to observe the panorama of the town.
King’s City Eilat is a popular amusement center that, however, has managed to become a true architectural landmark of Eilat. The complex is open on the popular waterfront that is nearly always crowded. The center, indeed, looks like a luxurious royal castle. Behind impenetrable walls of the castle, visitors will find many amusements and rides that are worth giving a try.
Perhaps, Underwater Observatory Marine Park is one of the most unusual landmarks in Eilat. The underwater observatory consists of two halls located 6 meters deep in the water. These halls have large panoramic windows that are very comfortable for watching the underwater life. The observatory is built close to the unique coral reef. It is hard to put into words the beauty and diversity of the underwater life of this region. A visit to the observatory is a wonderful alternative for everyone who hasn’t mastered the basics of scuba diving yet and wants to admire the splendor of the underwater world in a comfortable way.
