Lonely Planet review

Marked by a needle-point steeple – the tallest structure on the Mount of Olives – the Russian Chapel of the Ascension is built over the spot from which the Russian Orthodox Church claims Jesus made his ascent to heaven. It’s hard to find, so look for a narrow alleyway leading off from the main street, in among the shops and cafes.
