    Shenkin Street

    by Nathalie_B Written Apr 11, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This street is known as the stylish one in Tel Aviv. It is a very popular among the young people and snobs ;-)
    Shenkin's cafes and terraces are very nice to spend a day at, but often these places are a bit overpriced, as well as the many shops in the area.
    It's nice to walk around the area, you'll find very interesting architecture there. This part of Tel Aviv still hides many old and beautiful buildings.

    Tel Aviv architecture

    by Nathalie_B Updated Apr 11, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This residential building is situated on the promenade. In my opinion it is the most remarkable construction in this area of the city. If you walk on Tayelet toward Old Jaffa you can see it on your left side, once you passed the opera house

    Jaffa in General

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Written Apr 9, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Yafo (Jaffa Hill) rises to a height of 40 meters and offers a commanding view of the coastline. Hence its strategic importance in military history. Jaffa is an ancient port city believed to be one of the oldest in the world. Jaffa was captured during the Crusades, and became the County of Jaffa and Ascalon, one of the vassals of the Kingdom of Jerusalem.

    Jaffa is now a part of Tel Aviv.
    There are several legends about the origin of the name Jaffa. Some say it is named for Japheth, one of the sons of Noah, who built it after the Great Flood. The Hellenist tradition links the name to "Iopeia", which is Cassiopeia, the mother of Andromeda.

    Tel Aviv in General

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Written Apr 9, 2010

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Tel Aviv is the second-largest city in Israel after Jerusalem. In Hebrew its name means "Spring Mound".

    Tel Aviv was founded in 1909 on the outskirts of the ancient port city of Jaffa.
    Tel Aviv and Jaffa were merged into a single municipality in 1950, two years after the establishment of the State of Israel.

    An Interesting Sculpture!

    by Jackiekg Updated Feb 8, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Today I went for another walk to the seashore, entering the park in front of the Hilton Hotel (opposite 198 Hayarkon Street) and came across this piece of sculpture before following a path to the sea This is what is written on a plaque:
    "Pietro Dascella
    Gate of Peace
    1972
    Stone
    Gift of the Artist
    Baron and Baroness Urvater
    The Yehoshua Rabinowitz Tel Aviv Foundation For Literature & Art at the initiative of Aviva Najar"
    It is possible to walk through.
    I wasn't able to find any history on this piece of work.
    There is a lot of street sculpture in Tel Aviv and I hope to photograph more pieces.

    Take A Seat!!

    by Jackiekg Updated Jun 15, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Today I went on a tour of the area of Rothschild Blvd. to hear about the architecture there - (will be adding more photos to my travelogue on architecture) - and these seats were put up along Rothschild Blvd. The part I covered was from corner Herzl /Rothschild Street as far as Sothebys, just past Spadal Street. There are about 150 of these seats placed all over the city. This is a commercial project and include seats that were designed by designers and architects, backed by large commercial firms in Israel. In about two months these seats will be offered for public sale with the monies earmarked for children in need. I think this is a great idea and the seats brighten up the town and your hearts when you see them.

    Each seat has the name of the work and the name of its artist. If I knew the exact translation of each title I would write them. One I can translate and it is "Days of the Radio" - I shall let you decide which one this is.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Buses No. 5, 12, 26 to Rothschild; or Bus No. 4 to corner of Allenby Rd. Numbers start from Allenby end.

    This building is situated at 13 Rothschild Blvd. just past the corner of Herzl Street. It was built in the 1920's. The building used to be a branch of Bank Mizrachi.

    Go to my travelogue on architecture to see more old/beautiful buildings.

    Do We Own Them Or Do They Own Us?

    by RhineRoll Written Mar 3, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I've always suspected that cats are actually the true masters of the place and that we are quite mistaken when we think we own them... Tel Aviv offers plenty of evidence that it is rather the cats who rule us -- they are omnipresent! The specimen pictured here guards the entrance of an apartment block in Pinsker Street and is respectfully greeted by everybody walking by.

    Bauhaus Architecture

    by RhineRoll Updated Mar 3, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Tel Aviv has many fine examples of houses being built in the 1930ies-1940ies "Bauhaus" or international style. Especially houses with these slender rounded corners and bands of balconies look really wonderful in their simple, clear-cut aesthetics. There are more than 4,000 such buildings in Tel Aviv. Of course, not all of them are preserved and maintained to their original state, but it is just as interesting to see how the people living both with and within this architecture have left their marks on it. Many buildings could be in better repair and really use some new paint but there are also many properties being renovated and upgraded. Tel Aviv was declared a UNESCO heritage site because of this amazing architectural wealth.
