About Russian Compound, West Jerusalem

Built for Russian pilgrims visiting Jerusalem during the late-19th century, the Russian Compound lies in the heart of the city. It is home to former pilgrim hospices, a Russian consulate, the grandiose Holy Trinity Cathedral and ancient archaeological sites.

At the centre of the Russian Compound stands the magnificent Holy Trinity Cathedral, topped by distinctive green domes. Wander through the lavish, salmon-coloured interior adorned with ornate chandeliers and paintings of saints.

Visit the Museum of Underground Prisoners, set within a former women’s hostel converted into a prison during the British occupation. Wander through the former exercise yards and along death row, then see the escape cell where 12 inmates found freedom.

Be sure to see the “Finger of Og”, an immense monolithic column discovered during excavations in the Russian Compound. It is believed to have been intended for Herod’s Temple, with a visible fault thought to be the reason it was abandoned.

Getting there

The Russian Compound can easily be accessed from the City Hall tram stop or by bus. Its historic streets are best explored on foot.
