How to tour all of Israel in just two hours [video]

The secret is Mini Israel, a theme park with fully animated dioramas faithfully reproducing Israel’s buildings, landscapes and — most importantly — people.

Israel may be a small country, but there’s so much to see that it would take months to get a good taste of all its history, archeology, architecture, religion, industry, leisure, military and educational sites.

Located near Ben-Gurion International Airport, the entertainment theme park is a popular place to start or end a trip to Israel. It has 385 painstakingly crafted dioramas in full miniature detail, populated by 25,000 tiny figures playing soccer, praying, flying airplanes, shopping, driving trucks — all the things Israelis do, just a lot smaller.
