Haifa is the largest city in northern Israel, and the third-largest city in the country. Jewish citizens make up a 90% majority of the population. It is home to the Bahá'í World Centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built on the slopes of Mount Carmel, Haifa has a history dating back to Biblical times. Over the centuries, the city has changed hands: It has been conquered and ruled by the Byzantines, Arabs, Crusaders, Ottomans, Egyptians, and the British. Since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, the city has been governed by the Haifa Municipality. Today, the city is a major seaport located on Israel's Mediterranean coastline in the Bay of Haifa.
