Mini Israel is a theme park of "Israel in Miniature" - there are about 350 models which are exact replicas built on a scale of 1:25. When I showed this photo, which is of The Performing Arts Theatre in Te Aviv, to my daughter, at first glance she thought it was the real thing. There are also about 50,000 plants, of which 20,000 are miniature trees consisting of 50 different species. These were grown especially for the park. My friends and I went about 5pm and after walking around for a couple of hours, had something to eat in the restaurant (there is also a coffee shop), and waited until it was dark to see the park lit up.
This is a great place for visitors from abroad.
If I can work out where to put my other photos, I shall do so as I have really nice ones of places like the Bahai Temple in Haifa and The Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem.
