People watching Eurovision 2023 will be able to spot a familiar local landmark. 

Stonehenge features in the promotional video ahead of Israel's act Noa Kirel. 

It is part of a series of promotional videos shown before each act that showcases a famous landmark, feature, area or building from the home country, last year's winner Ukraine and the country performing.

Prehistoric monument Stonehenge, which is about eight miles north of Salisbury, is shown via drone footage.

It is one of the most famous and recognisable landmarks in the world, and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The site dates back to around 2500 BCE, making it over 4,500 years old. The purpose of Stonehenge remains a mystery, but it is believed to have been used as a religious or ceremonial site, or possibly as an astronomical observatory.

Also featured in the promo video is Uritsky Rocks, one of the most picturesque sites in the Ukrainian Carpathians, located in the National Park Skole Beskids.

The rugged landscape of Masada in the Judaean Desert is shown to represent Israel. Masada is in Israel on the edge of the Judean desert, between Ein Gedi and Sodom, and is a symbol of the ancient kingdom of Israel.
