#2 of 17 in Historic Sites in Tel Aviv
A World Heritage Site, White City contains thousands of International and Bauhaus Style buildings. After the rise of the Nazi Party in the 1930s, many Jewish architects from the Bauhaus art school immigrated to the region and designed buildings for the new city, which now contains more structures built in this style than any other urban center in the world. Take a guided tour or explore the town on your own to encounter one of these buildings on every corner, some well preserved and some scheduled for complete restoration.

  • Here I stay in a UNESCO World Heritage site. The "Hotel cinema" is located on the Dizengoffplatz in the pedestrian area of the city. The former "Esther cinema" was built by the Bauhaus architect J. Magidovitch and inaugurated in 1939 with the movie "Snow white and the 7 dwarfs". 1992 was the last performance and at the end of the 90's was converted to the cinema in a hotel. It is getting much of the cinema and there are beautiful pieces of decoration in the rooms. The sun terrace on the 4th floor offers great views of the city. In the early evening, juices, coffee, tea, wine, sparkling wine, puff pastry, raw vegetables with dips, olives and much more are served free. Also free are simple bicycles. I'm a bike and discover the pearls of the Bauhaus and modern architecture in the city. On my travel site toeightycountries.com more about Israel
