Tel Aviv Bauhaus style
The signature architectural style of Tel Aviv is Bauhaus, a functional style from the 1930s noted for its curvilinear forms. Its concentration of Bauhaus buildings gives Tel Aviv the nickname “The White City” and was designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2003. There are great guided walking tours of the Bauhaus district. Page 2.
Shopping in Tel Aviv
Much of the pleasure of shopping in Tel Aviv comes from discovering independent boutiques away from the busy shopping malls. Pictured here, the main shop of David Sassoon, Israel’s best-known menswear designer, on Mohaliver Street in downtown Tel Aviv. Page 5.
Tel Aviv beaches
Tel Aviv’s seaside promenade runs the length of the city from north to south. The water’s great for swimming from April to October, and anytime of year it’s pleasant to take a break from the bustle of the city at one of the open-air cafes facing the beach.
A typical Israeli breakfast dish is shakshuka, a spicy tomato stew with two poached eggs. If you order it in a restaurant like the one pictured here in the Kerem HaTeimanim neighborhood, the tomatoes will come from the famous Carmel Market nearby. Page 6.
