Tiberias is an ancient city in the Galilee, located on the western shore of Lake Kinneret (also known as the Sea of Galilee). Like Jerusalem, Hebron and Safed, Tiberias is one of the holiest cities for the Jews. This is a very picturesque place with narrow and winding streets and old houses of black basalt, which give the city a special charm.

The city was founded by the son of King Herod the Great in 17 AD and made it his residence, and he received its name in honor of the Roman emperor Tiberius. After the revolt of the Jews against the Romans was crushed and Jerusalem was destroyed, the land of Galilee became the center of Jewry. Tiberias was the only city in the entire Roman Empire, the absolute majority of whose population were Jews.

Today Tiberias is considered to be a synonym for an interesting, but inexpensive place for spending holidays in Israel, where ancient history blends harmoniously with modernity.

The thermal baths Hamey Tiberias, that functioning on the basis of mineral springs, lots of attractions, unique tourist routes to holy places, as well as comfortable holidays on Kineret Lake annually attract many tourists from all over the world to the city.
