Mini Israel

Mini Israel magen david
Today we put a stand with our twirling Israeli flag in the gift shop of Mini-Israel and took a map of the park home...

 Mini Israel is a miniature models park, between Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv,  which is designed in the shape of a Star of David, marked by a red brick path, while each triangle is devoted to a different part of the country - Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem, the Negev, the Galilee

Jaimal Yogis wrote that "The Park is built in the shape of the Star of David to avoid delineating Israel's shifting borders".


In the park there are more than 330 detailed models of important Israeli sites and 50,000 plants (17,000 of them are miniature trees). It was built at an investment of $20 million and it covers seven acres of land.
