In addition, 6,000 Christian travelers from more than 100 countries around the world arrived in Israel last week as part of the annual Feast of Tabernacles convention, considered the largest tourism event in Israel, and voted for the Dead Sea.


"Winning this title will significantly increase the numbers of tourists visiting Israel in general and the Dead Sea region in particular, boosting the local economy, creating thousands of new jobs and improving Israel's image overseas," said Misezhnikov.


"We urge you to spread the word: Vote for the Dead Sea as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature".
