Yardenit Eucalyptus Groves
Next to Kibbutz Kinneret is Yardenit; a particularly beautiful spot where the Jordan River is wide, calm and shaded by Eucalyptus trees. During baptismal ceremonies, those being baptized don special gowns which can be rented at the site. There are empty bottles available that can be filled with holy water from the site.
At the entrance to Yardenit is the Community Wall which welcomes visitors and explains the significance of the site for Christians. In recent years, a walking path has been opened which allows pilgrims to sit peacefully by the banks of the river. South of the baptismal site is a Eucalyptus grove where private prayer meetings can be held.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
