In recent years, the Old City of Be'er-Sheva has become a significant attraction for tourists from all over the world. The Old City hosts dozens of festivals and events throughout the year. International tourist sites have been established, there are a bustling art scene and incredible nightlife, which attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors from Israel and abroad.
The Be'er-Sheva municipality, through the Old City Tourism Administration and the Economic Company, are currently leading a move that will make the Old City more interactive and experiential. The initiative will see QR codes posted at 11 major tourist and cultural centers in the Old City including the Artists' House, the British Cemetery, the ANZAC Soldiers Memorial Center, Allenby Park, The Turkish Railway Visitor Center, Abraham's Well Visitor Center, Gateway to the Negev Visitor Center, The Be'er-Sheva Youth Center, the Museum Complex, the Carasso Science Park, and the Fringe Theater.
The codes will enable tourists to receive a detailed video clip and content about the site in which they are located; in Hebrew or English.
The Old City Tourism Administration related, "We are pleased to continue to develop tourism in the Old City and are preparing for the growing number of tourists and visitors from Israel and abroad who come to visit the sites throughout the city."
