Architecture

Israel was ruled throughout most of its history by various cultures, which have profoundly influenced its architecture – Templar, Crusader, Byzantine, Arab, and also European styles such as Russian, or Ottoman (Turkish).

Today, Israel pays homage to the past by encouraging the restoration of old properties that contribute to the beauty and pride of its cities.

Tel Aviv has a special role in the local architecture. In the 1920’s and 30’s, Jewish architects from Europe settled and introduced the modern Bauhaus style, which was well adapted to the local climate and need. Most of the buildings were white, leading to its moniker the “White City”. The old Bauhaus streets are popular and are the heartbeat of the city’s vibrant lifestyle.
