    Dakar S-77

    by ophiro Updated Aug 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dakar was a submarine that was built in 1943 in the UK and when she sailed to israel she disappeared (25/1/1968).

    Only in 1999 the israelis with help from other countries found the body of the submarine in the water.

    69 crew members died.

    Now the command bridge is in the maritime museum and you can see it on your way on the main street.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are a lot of places to see the city from above.
    Yefe nof is one of the most beautiful places , just above the Bahai shrine.
    You can see the entire city and in a good day you can see Lebanon.

    In the evening and night the view is even much more beautiful , everything is shining below - amazing thing.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Castra shopping centre has the most amazing design and has a huge wall mural painted by Austrian artist Erich Brauer of the phantastical school of art. It depicts scenes from the bible and on the roof are some incredible statues. Inside are art galleries and a weird doll museum.
    Worth a stop!!
