the kingdom of sands and time
why it's worth going to Jordan with Apatite Hills
Holidays in Jordan - soak up the traditions of the Middle East
The Kingdom of Jordan is a mysterious and alluring country, covered with ancient legends and fairy tales, absorbed the traditions of the Middle East, and so unlike other Middle Eastern countries. A state whose culture reflects the millennial heritage of the peoples who ruled on its territory. The Nabataean Kingdom and the ancient Greeks led by Alexander the Great, Ancient Rome and the Arab Caliphate, the Mamluks, the Ottoman Empire and the century-old history of the lordship of Transjordan – from the Crusades to the independent Kingdom of Jordan, proclaimed in May 1945.
Like the rich history of the country, the territory of Jordan resembles an unexplored book, in which each page opens its own world filled with secrets and discoveries. Ancient Petra is the Nabataean capital and one of the seven wonders of the world, an incomprehensible city carved into the rocks.
The fantastic “lunar desert” of Wadi Rum with its boundless sands painted by the sun in an endless spectrum of different colors and shades. Pompeii of the East – the Greco-Roman city of Jerash and the brilliant capital of Jordan – spread out on seven hills of Amman. The Dead Sea, famous all over the world for its unique healing properties, and the amazing Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea is one of the most popular diving spots in the world.
Jordan is a country with excellent opportunities for recreation and travel, carefully preserving the heritage of those “who made the tales of the ancients a lesson for the peoples of the future.”
