    Sculpture on the Streets of Tel Aviv

    by Jackiekg Updated Mar 11, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tel Aviv has many fine sculptures outdoors. At one time there was a law that buildings over a certain size had to include artwork to a value of 1% of the building's cost. This is why many high rise buildings have sculptures in their forecourt. That law does not exist today. Also Meshulem Riklis donated $250,000 in 1989 to beautify Tel Aviv. 15 sculpters were chosen and each given $15,000 to make a sculpture, which were then put in different locations in the city.
    The sculpture here is of Mordechai Schornstein by Kaele Ephraim Marcus. It was created in 1945. Schornstein had a zoo here until the 1970's (in fact I used to bring my kids here), and when it grew too large for this spot the animals were moved to Ramat Gan.
    This statue is just outside the park of Gan Ha'ir, on Hadassa Street. The main entrance of Gan Ha'ir - a good class shopping centre is on Ibn Gvirol Street, next to the Tel Aviv municipality.

    A Pretty Spot and Monument

    by Jackiekg Updated Aug 24, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This monument commemorates the Battle of Kikar Hill on 21st December 1927. The waterfall is on the same spot and is dedicated to the late Haviv Ben-Shaanan, who grew up here. It was dedicated by his mother Sarah. On the other side is a tomb cave.
    This area was settled from the 4th millenium onward by different ancient peoples, their remains, including Israelite settlement and monarchy periods have been brought to light in excavations conducted by the Museum of Antiquities of Tel-Aviv-Yafo Museum Haaretz. The tomb cave dates to the Judian period.

    This site is adjacent to Shimon Hatarsi and Horkonus Streets - north Tel-Aviv, not far from the bridge crossing the Yakon at the end of Ibn Gvirol Street.
    This place is frequented very regularly, every day - by cats!! Cat lovers look after the cats roaming around the area and have taken it upon themselves to feed them and have them spayed.
    It is a pretty spot and next to it is a small park with a playground. I wonder if even the neighbours know the history of this spot.

    Go and visit Ceasararea. It is very close to Tel Aviv and nice to see. It is an old roman harbourplace. Not much is left, but there still are some temples, statues and an arena to be seen! You can find more about this place in the travellogue on my Israëlpage!

    Do rafting in the upper Jordan river. A great way to see some of the landscapes in the Golan hights and the Jordan valley. The best time to do it is April-June when it is not so hot and there are enough water for the rafting it self.

    Rothchield Avn with is old and renewvated houses, with it's trees and walkway. It starts at Herzel St. in the middle of Tel Aviv chaos and ended at Ha'Bima Sq. Where one of the first theaters sits today.
    With the restaurants and the coffee houses, walking in the afternoon or evening it sets you in a most relaxing mode.
