The history of the city

In 1909, a group of Jewish families from the port city of Jaffa, settled more than seven thousand years ago, founded the city of Tel Aviv. Initially, Tel Aviv was created on the territory adjacent to the border of Jaffa, but in 1950, the two cities were merged into a single municipality with the name Tel Aviv – Jaffa.

The city of youth culture

Tel Aviv has the largest number of art galleries, cafes, restaurants, and nightclubs compared to other cities in Israel. The city attracts young entrepreneurs and artists, scientists and cultural figures with its progressivity and pluralism.
