Fodor's 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 houses an extensive collection of Palestinian artifacts and archaeological finds. Behind the museum is a sprawling garden complex with lush green lawns and towering palm trees.
