    Tamar Hayardeni

As we delve into the Relief of Jerusalem, created by Austro-Hungarian cartographer, Stefan Illés in 1873, we’ll get to know its wonderful story. After getting acquainted with the Relief displayed in the Tower of David Museum, we’ll go out to check which of its treasures are still visible. The purpose of the day is to study the Relief’s geo-politics and get a closer look into the history of Jerusalem in the 19th century.
