Zichron Yaakov is fortunate that it escaped the construction frenzy which turned many former Israeli villages and small towns into modern cities.

In more recent years it was...more

אחת האהבות הגדולות שלי היא זכרון יעקב. אני אוהבת לטייל בסמטאות ובחצרות היפיפיים והספוגים בהיסטוריה של ההתיישבות בישראל לפני למעלה ממאה שנה. המושבה היפה בעלת האופי המיוחד מלאה במסעדות ובחנויות שונות. בביקורי בשבוע שעבר, גיליתי בוטיק יפיפה עם בגדים מדהימים מאיטליה. הבגדים באיכות גבוהה מאד מבתי אופנה מפורסמים באיטליה. בעלת החנות היפיפייה והחמודה עזרה ושרתה אותנו כ"כ יפה שממש לא רצינו לעזוב וללכת. אני ממליצה מכל הלב לבקר בזכרון יעקב ובמיוחד לבקר בבוטיק שנמצא בחצר הרשקוביץ (המיסדים 51), לא רחוק מבית הכנסת.
החלק הישראלי בבוטיק הם התיקים והחגורות של עינת סקלסקי
הבגדים בבוטיק הם מבתי האופנה האיטלקים,
TWIN-SET ו - MASTRO MODA (הידוע בבגדי הפשתן המדהימים שלו).
This is a small coffee-bar on a quiet alley on the main street (Hameyasdim 56).
We went to sit here and drink something.
The service is bad and we waited for Milkshake 10-15 minutes and when we got the drinks we replaced them because they were not thick as they supposed to be.
In the nature park outside Ramat Ha-Nadiv -(see my tip: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/d29d6/1a0f74/4/), there are a few hiking trails. One of them (marked in red) leads west, to the Byzantine ruin of Mansur-El-Aqab.The location is impressive, at the edge of the Carmel mountain south-western slope, overlooking the coastal plain. You can see...more
