Tel Aviv the city ahead of its time, which, according to the Israelis themselves, "never sleeps."

I am your tour guide in Israel and I want to show you all the charm of the secular capital of Israel with its historic streets and ultra-modern neighborhoods.

 

Since the late 19 century, the first Jewish immigrants began arriving mostly from Europe and Africa to the holy land and new neighborhoods outside the old city of Jaffa were founded, the first neighborhood was neve Zedek which was established by Jews from Africa, the mission was to build a neighborhood completely separated from the Ottoman Jaffa, The second neighborhood called neve shalom and then Kerem Hateymanim, those neighborhoods were joined together to become separated municipality from Jaffa, during the beginning of the 20th century more immigrants arrived from Europe and the population began to grow, those neighborhoods became a Hebrew center in the central district of the future country. Eventually, More land was purchased and those neighborhoods became the city that we all know, tel Aviv.
 
This city began to develop, cultural institutions begin to grow together with big and central streets, by 1914 Tel Aviv has grown to a size of one square kilometer and the population was nearly 3000 people, at the end of the first world war more and more Jews begun immigrating to Tel Aviv. The city attracted many European Jews since they had all the comforts which they were used to in Europe such as running water, cinema, opera, theater, schools, restaurants, and cafés.
 
In 1923 Tel Aviv was the first city to be wired to electricity, in 1925 Patrick Geddes Scottish architect created the master plan for Tel Aviv together with the first mayor of the city Meir Dizengoff. 
 
In 1933 the Jewish population began to grow dramatically since the nazis came to power in Germany and the population was more than 160,000 people, a port and also an airport began operating in this remarkable city, during 1947 after the UN made the partition plan Tel Aviv was included in the future Jewish state.
 
In 1948 the Declaration of Independence of Israel was declared in Tel Aviv in the same house where the first mayor of the city was living with his wife, the main man was David ben Gurion who declared this revolutionary message.
 
Today Tel Aviv considered as the vibe, modern and commercial center of Israel combining old neighborhoods and progressive high-tech zones.
All the immigrants who arrived during different periods to Tel Aviv brought their own cuisine, culture, and architecture and created a unique city.
 
Tel Aviv has a huge number of galleries and museums, one of my favorites is the Bauhaus museum located in the historical center of the city, the Tel Aviv Museum of art is a great option to get familiar with the Israeli local artists, the Museum of history of Tel Aviv, Ruven Rubin Museum, and many many more.
 
Yitzhak Rabin museum is a great place to get to know Israel in different periods and the history of this great man who was the Prime Minister and was assassinated by a terrorist.
 
The streets are also amazing especially the Rothschild Boulevard, King George St. and of course the promenade along the Mediterranean sea.
 
Walking in the old neighborhoods such as Neve Zedek Will take you back to the past but also to the future since this neighborhood became one of the trendiest places in Israel for local designers and rich people.
 
The markets of Tel Aviv will amaze you with the colors and the variety of different foods alongside local restaurants, one of my favorite thing to do is a culinary tour in the markets of this remarkable city so please keep it in mind.
 
The variety of restaurants is huge since we have so many different cultures merging one into another so don’t be surprised to be lost by making a decision where to eat.
 
Graffiti tour is also a great option in the trendiest neighborhood of the city called florentine, the neighborhood has developed in the past 10 years and still attracting the young population.
