Virtual Tour of the Knesset with Google's Street View
A rare glimpse into the Knesset with Google's "Street View" virtual tour
Launched in May 2007, Street View is a popular feature of Google Maps which is already available in 56 countries and over 3,000 cities worldwide. The service allows users to virtually navigate through neighborhoods and visit historic landmarks through panoramic, street-level images. The service is free.
Now, for the first time, the Knesset is offering virtual tours of the parliament building, making it a part of a select group of parliaments and government buildings - including the White House, 10 Downing Street and the Canadian parliament - which people can visit with a click of the mouse.
- On the fourth floor, see the Plenum from the special viewing balcony, Chagall Hall with its tapestries and mosaics created by artist Marc Chagall along with the wall of MKs who have won the Israel Prize, as well as the exit to the outdoor Knesset Plaza, where state ceremonies are held and where the stands offering information on Israel's fallen soldiers are located.
- On the third floor you can look into the Plenum and take in the view from the Speaker of the Knesset's seat. You can also see the corridor through which the Speaker of the Knesset and the MKs enter the Plenum.
- On the second floor you can peer into the "Negev" debate hall and the Education, Culture and Sports Committee's room.
- On the first floor, see the building's synagogue, Sprinzak Hall (named after the first Speaker of the Knesset), the corridor where the Knesset members' offices are located and the private office of an MK.
