Haifa, Israel

Haifa, located in Northern Israel on the slopes of Mount Carmel, is Israel's third largest city. Israeli postage stamps are known for their decorative selvage. They always have something interesting going on in at least one of the sheet margins. This pair of stamps commemorates the Israel Nation Trail: a 1000km trail that stretches along the length of Israel, covering several natural and historic points of interest along the way.
