The dreary apartment blocks are shrouded in a different, magical atmosphere.Lots of short theater shows are on in every corner of the promenade and in every municipal park, most of them from Israel, some from overseas. And they are all free. Free...

  • Play Chess on the Promenade

    If you are a chess player, and want to test your skills against the local champs of Bat-Yam, go to the beach promenade and look for the chess corner. Or look for the metal sculpture in the photo, which will guide you to the chess table. Many of the players are immigrants from the former USSR, with a long a glorious tradition of chess. Good luck!...
