A short account of the Tel Aviv, given by your Israel & Jerusalem private tour guide
Until the late 1800’s, the only city on the central coast of the country was Jaffa, mostly populated with Arabs, but still having a small Jewish community. Only in 1906, did the idea of having a modernized independent “Hebrew city” come up. In April of 1909, 66 families started the process of building the new Tel Aviv.
Little Tel Aviv developed very quickly by Jewish immigrants in the 1920’s and 1930’s. They brought the Bauhaus style of architecture, developed here to the “international style” for which Tel Aviv is known. The so-called “White City” has been declared as World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
