In 1932 the Naharayim power plant was bult on the eastern side of the Jordan River and began functioning. At the beginning of Israel‘s Independence War in 1948 it was destroyed and stopped functioning. Kibbutz Gesher and the Israel Electric Company came together in order to demonstrate how the power plant once produced electricity; creating a special model in order to do so. The presentation has an authentic feel to it due to the light and sound effects employed in the show. Visitors walk through a system of dams and bridges, passing a water tower and turbine room while the sound of running water plays in the background and lights and colors flash out at them. The site also tells the story of the establishment of Jewish settlements in the area, including the heroic men and women who prevented an invasion over the Jordan River in 1948. Displays include an inn, bridge, border post, bus, train and armored vehicle. Special activities are offered- to be booked in advance. There is also a snack bar, visitor’s center, group lunches by reservation and coffee shop available.

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.
