Around Jerusalem and the Dead Sea Sights


Russian Museum Review

Russian funding has given a glorious status to the gnarled sycamore that tradition identifies as the Tree of Zacchaeus, which the chief tax collector climbed to get a better look at Jesus (Luke 19:1–4). The Russian Museum was built as a Greek-style palace just behind the tree, and it houses an extensive collection of Russian art and ancient Palestinian artifacts. Behind the museum is a sprawling garden complex with lush green lawns and towering palm trees.
