The Carmelit (Hebrew: כַּרְמְלִית) is an underground funicular railway in Haifa, Israel. Construction started in 1956 and ended in 1959. It is one of the smallest subway systems in the world, having only four cars, six stations and a single tunnel 1.8 km long. Because much of Haifa is built on top of Mount Carmel, the Carmelit (named after this mountain) is an underground funicular that goes up and down the mountain. The altitude difference between the first and last stations is 274 meters..(wikipedia)

Vic Stefanu, firstname.lastname@example.org. The Old City is a 0.9 square kilometers (0.35 sq mi) walled area within the modern city of Jerusalem. The Old City is home to several sites of key religious importance: the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque for Muslims, the Temple Mount and Western Wall for Jews and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre for Christians, It was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site List in 1981.
The Carmelit is a 1.8 km long underground funicular railway with six stations - most funicular systems just have two. It runs up through Mount Carmel in Haifa, Israel. A funicular railway is a cable railway with ascending and descending cars counterbalanced. The Carmelit operates entirely underground. Similar systems can be found in Istanbul, Barcelona etc but they have less stations. Istanbul's system was built in the 19th century and is therefore older than the Carmelit - sorry I got that wrong in the video. The Carmelit's highest station (Gan Ha’em) is 274 meters above the lowest (Paris Square). The system was built between 1956 and 1959 under the direction of Yosef Cohen, then Haifa’s City Engineer. It opened for passengers in 1959 and then closed in 1986 for modernisation. In 1992 ...
Siendo Israel uno de los países más modernos del planeta, es bastante sorprendente la deficiencia en su sistema de transporte público. Y mientras que la mayor parte de las grandes ciudades tienen algún modo de ser recorridas rápidamente bajo tierra, los visitantes siempre se han preguntado por qué en Israel no hay tren subterráneo bajo las principales metrópolis. Las respuestas variaban: desde una falta de presupuesto hasta la prevención por excavar puesto que demasiado frecuentemente se encuentran yacimientos arqueológicos. Pero abundan también las explicaciones psicológicas, siendo una de ellas la relación del subconsciente colectivo con el holocausto.

A 21st century way to commute through an ancient city. Running from the northern edge of Jerusalem to Mount Herzl in the south, with further extensions planned, the electrified Jerusalem Light Rail has changed the face of transportation in the ancient city. The Light Rail runs 13.9 kilometers (8.6 miles) through the capital, stopping at most major tourist sites and connecting with bus lines. It's a great way to meet the people of Jerusalem and get a real feel for life in the city. As one passenger notes on this video: "It's good to see that they've got signs and announcements in Hebrew, English and Arabic so it's inclusive of everyone. It's really good." --------------------------------------------------------- Visit the MFA's Social Media Channels: Facebook - http://www.faceboo...
