‘The First Station’ — an Ottoman-era train station, has been converted into a cultural compound.

“It’s awesome,” exclaims a visitor to The First Station , the renovated Ottoman-era train station in downtown Jerusalem, which has been turned into a hub for entertainment and nightlife.

“It’s so much happening in one place and it’s such a variety of fun things, tasty things, and a beautiful thing to see in Jerusalem.”

The 130-year-old building stood empty for many years, and now it’s alive with music, literary and artistic events for all ages, plus craft vendors, cafés and restaurants.
