Among the distinguishing phenomena of Israeli reality is Tel Aviv. It was the first Jewish town to be founded in modern Israel. Starting off as a suburb of Jaffa it’s now the largest city – all of this happened because of people who invested their money, energy and initiative. Together they made Tel Aviv the commercial capital of Israel. Major industry factories, concerns are here. Cultural life is full with galleries, museums, along with numerous restaurants and cafes which are available in all price ranges to suit all pockets.
Known for its night life and up-to-the-minute eateries and attractions, Tel Aviv is a modern city with a huge array of amenities to suit nearly every taste. It is the 1st most visited city Israel and is often called 'the city that never sleeps.' The area the city now inhabits is believed to have first been settled in the middle of the Bronze Age. Originally a port city known as Jaffa, Tel Aviv was founded in 1909 as a suburb. Eventually, Jaffa was absorbed into Tel Aviv and it became a sprawling, modern metropolis.
Nearly 92 percent of the population identifies as Jewish, while 4 percent identify as Muslim or Arab Christians. There are also tiny pockets of Asians and other assorted Christians mixed into the population. In the 1990s, a large influx of immigrants from the former Soviet Union helped boost the population, which is now growing steadily at half a percentage point a year.
Tel Aviv has so much to offer as far as culture and activities that nearly everyone will be able to find something to suit their taste. Performance arts such as orchestras, dance troupes and theater productions are fun for everyone, as are attractions like the beach, museums, fine dining establishments and sporting events. For adults, there are a plethora of night clubs and bars from which to choose. Tel Aviv is also rated as very friendly to the LGBTQ community, hosting an LGBTQ film festival each year and organizing annual massive pride parade. If you're looking for a relaxing place to take a breather from all the excitement, 19 percent of the city is reserved as green space and the parks are a good place to picnic, jog or play sports with friends. Bauhaus architecture ensured UNESCO status for Tel Aviv as well as "White City" nickname.
