Christ lived in the city of Capernaum (Kfar Nahum in Hebrew). Here he walked “like on dry land”, worked miracles, healed the sick, resurrected the dead. The first disciples of Christ - Peter, James, John, Andrew were local fishermen. Mary Magdalene came out of these parts. Tourists visit the Orthodox Church and the monastery of the 12 apostles, at this place, according to the legend, Christ healed the paralyzed.
Further, our path lies to the source of the Jordan River from the Sea of Galilee - this is a traditional place where Christians bathe with the waters of the Jordan in memory of the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist. Tourists and pilgrims expect clear greenish water and an abundance of fish that no one catches, but everyone feeds, otters and birds that are not afraid of the presence of people.
