While the first free day of the European Championship saw the tours to the Dead Sea and the fortress of Masada, the second day-off gave the participants the opportunity to enjoy the Old City of Jerusalem.

The photos of this report are courtesy of WGMs Maria Manakova and Nino Batsiashvili, who were among the tourists.

First of all, the participants were divided into several groups so that each group could have a separate tour.
