Independence Day is one of the happiest occasions in Israel’s holiday calendar and this year’s 67th anniversary is undoubtedly a special cause for celebration.

To help you enjoy this happy event, ISRAEL21c has put together a unique gallery bringing together some of the most spectacular photographs of Israel today.

A big thank-you goes to photographers Roy Katalan, Noam Chen, Elad Matityahu and many others for helping us bring you a taste of the incredible diversity and beauty on offer in this tiny country in the Middle East.

Happy Birthday Israel!
