Map Of Jerusalem New City

For most tourists, Jerusalem is expected to be to an old city full of 2000-years-old buildings and monuments, decorated with synagogues, mosques and churches.

Well, the truth is that Jerusalem probably used to look this way, but it has changed around 200 years ago.

The new Jerusalem is a modern, large city in which the old town is just a tiny part.

Today we’ll discuss the map of Jerusalem new city, the main parts that Jerusalem consists of and of course – we’ll see how to get a map of Jerusalem present day.

 

Main Neighborhoods of Jerusalem

New Jerusalem has been built over the years, consisting of plenty of new neighborhoods.

Until 1967, eastern and northern parts were controlled by Jordan, so the first large neighborhoods under the new state of Israel, were built in the west and the south.

After 1967, due to both practical and political causes, the vast majority of the construction was taking place in the east and north.

Because of the city’s hilly terrain, many neighborhoods are built on hills, leaving the valleys as natural, empty borders.

Since the year of 2009, a new light city train is connecting the major parts of the city, allowing passengers to easily drive from the western parts straight to the city center, the old city and northern areas.

 

Obtaining a Current Map

 

Like any other major city in the world, the map tourists are looking for will be totally different from the map that local citizens will try to obtain.

The reason is pretty obvious – locals will usually need a map of business areas, malls and even regular residential streets. On the other hand, tourists and new visitors will prefer detailed map of Jerusalem’s points of interest.

When you look for a map, first choose which one you need. For tourists purposes, you can search for maps online, but the best map can be found at any entrance gate to the old city of Jerusalem, where you could also purchase some cool Israel souvenirs.
