    Street Musicians

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    street musician and 2 statues, 1 plays and 1 dance

    Netanya is full of people who are playing music in the city, especially violins.
    In all the squares and pedestrian streets you can hear pleasens sounds of this music.
    if you are generous that day you may give this musician a mall sum of money, after all he also have to make a living...
    It become so common that today you can even see statues of musicians that the mayor put on centeral places.

    Fishing In Netanya

    by edvin_br Written Apr 3, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As long as i remember there are always people who are fishing at the coast. They are fishing all year long, even in winter!!!!
    most of them are fishing at the Sironit beach where there are many breakwaters, they can seat thereva few hours and at the end they catch something, especially small cutr fishes.
    I tried it once. My uncle use to fish a lot so once when we both were at the beach i went there but i had no luck and i didnt catch nothing so i walked away and i vdidnt go back there again, its not easy to get there because the breakwaters are very slippy and i afraid to fall down...
    So if fishing is you hobby this is the place for you in Netanya!!!

    France flag... nice colors!!

    You see the people who immigrated from France to Netanya... i dont know the reason why they came here, but it happend in the last 2 years... you can see them walking around particularly in the Liberty square and in the main street (Hertzel)... you see people of all ages... small kids, teenagers, adults and elderly persons.
    To me it seems that they dont do anything all day... no work... no school... but i like them, they giving the city an armosphere like there were tourists (what you cant see because the bad security situation).

    Some fat pigeons looking for food near a becnch

    In Netany there are some places where you can find pigeons, a lot of them. They are waiting especially in Squares, Promenades and Pedestrian malls.
    Ycan find a lot of them in Hertzel pedestrian mall, i even saw a lot of them in the fountain that dosnt works...
    If you have something to eat you can give them a bit, not too much because they are small animals and they are fat anyway... im sure they will love it!!

    Shahar Hagie Str.

    by edvin_br Written Apr 4, 2004
    A usual day t the strret

    Its a small but a very busy street. It leads you from Hertzel blvd. to the Central bus station.
    There are some shops and restaurants in the area. You can eat in this street Falafel and shuwarma that are the Israelies national food, there are many small restaurants which sell it and you wont have problam to find it, there will be a lot of people who are aeting outside. In addition to this local costum you will also see in my picture at the right side a man who selling some kind of doughnut, its very good and cheap.

    The culture Center

    by edvin_br Written Apr 4, 2004
    The culture center at a crush hour...

    In this place there are many shows. There are plays, appearance, preformances and also stand up shows that are my favorites.
    So if you have a spare time come and see something, just plan it at a way that you will have ticket because sometimes there are no tickets when you arrive to the cash box before the show... :((
    Its located on city Center, Raziel str. 3 minouts from Hasharon shopping center and Hetzel blvd.

    A small garden (by left) in Waitzman street

    There are many small Gardens in the city where you can sit down or take your dog for a walk.
    Most of the time there are many old people sitting and talking there. Sometimes there are small statues too.
    Netanya is known as a city where there is an importent highlighting to the way that the streets look, the Municipality tries to make it with a lot f harmony and beauty.
