From the Declaration of Independence to the White City – let’s visit Tel Aviv, one of the most fascinating cities in Israel
Tel Aviv may be known as the city that never sleeps and as the “white city”, but it is also the site of many of Israel’s most historic events, with politics, culture, scandals and conspiracies all folded up into one place.
The Decleration of Independence
When people think of Israel’s declaration of independence, they think of the Knesset and Jerusalem. But in fact, at the time of the declaration, the “Knesset” resided in Tel Aviv. Thus, the declaration was held here, in a building overlooking the beautiful Rothschild Boulevard, which is still active and tourists may visit. We’ll start our tour in the building where David Ben-Gurion delivered the famous Declaration of Israel’s Independence, and see how humble beginnings have laid the way to the Israel of today. We will also admire the rare and fascinating architectural style called Bauhaus, of which Tel Aviv is renowned, and which has also given the city its title: “the White City”.
