Some tourist travel tips for Jordan

Jordan is one of those amazing places in the world that is like a historical mishmash – having borrowed ingredients from different cultures over the centuries, today the country has created its own taste, color and atmosphere that will be remembered for a long time.

If you are going on a first trip to the country, here are some of the main attractions of Jordan that you should not miss.
The ancient city of Petra
Until the Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burkhart “rediscovered” it in 1812, the ancient city of Petra was forgotten for centuries. It can be reached on foot through the Sik gorge, a narrow, windy passage, which in some sections is no more than 1.80 m wide, with rocks on both sides as high as a four-story building. At the end of this formidable, mile-and-a-half-long passage, a magical view through the gap awaits you: the Treasury, or Treasury, rising in a classical Greek-style temple carved directly into the vast front of a 39-meter cliff.
The Biblical Jordan River
It is a little over 250 kilometers long, passing through Israel, the West Bank and Jordan until it reaches the Dead Sea. The Jordan River is one of the sacred destinations for Christians and would participate in any ranking of the most sacred rivers in the world. The Bible describes that in its waters St. John the Baptist baptized the followers of the new religion, including Christ himself.
The capital Amman – a mix of civilizations
Amman is a city located on the border between the desert and the fertile valley called Jordan. Nearly 2,000 years ago, the Romans built a majestic city here, known as Philadelphia, and today it is a fascinating mix of ancient traditions and a modern capital. Situated on 19 hills, Amman will make you feel like a real discoverer as you get lost and find your way through the labyrinths of old streets, smelling of coffee shops and colorful shops.
Wadi Rum Desert – the lunar valley of Jordan
Winds and weather have sculpted the most exquisite rock skyscrapers, described in the most elegant way by Thomas Edward Lawrence (known as Lawrence of Arabia) as “huge, echoing and godlike.” Although at first glance the desert of Wadi Rum (or Wadi Rum) is an endless wasteland, it hides many secrets – in the tranquillity of the vast plains you can descend into deep canyons or rock paintings of more than 4,000 years.
