Tel-Aviv was originally founded in 1909 as a Jewish neighborhood next to the ancient city of Jaffa. It was first called Ahuzat Bayit, but was later named Tel-Aviv which means “hill of spring”. Even though Tel-Aviv was originally a district of the latter city, its economic influence rapidly grew. During WW1 many Jews were expelled from Jaffa and Tel-Aviv by the Turks, but they returned after Britain received the mandate for Palestine.
During the unrest in Arab Jaffa in the 1920’s, many Jews moved to Tel-Aviv and the population of the city showed further growth as a result. In the late 1940’s Jewish forces captured Jaffa and declared independence.
Tel-Aviv was a temporary capital of Israel after the proclamation of the country. The status of the capital was later shifted to Jerusalem after the historic city has been released from Jordanian rule. Many foreign countries still recognize Tel-Aviv as the capital of Israel and many diplomats can be found in this city.
Nowadays, Tel-Aviv truly is an economic and cultural center of Israel and the keeper of Hebrew culture. The city is home to many theaters, concert halls, museums, and galleries. The place of Jaffa is now a tourist and historical center, full of archaeological sites which continue to operate to this day, museums, as well as markets, restaurants and cafes.
It goes without saying, that Tel-Aviv is not only famous for its cultural value. Thanks to the gorgeous beach and a robust nightlife, the city is often called a non-stop city. Tel Aviv is a cosmopolitan city with a modern and vibrant atmosphere. It is a culinary haven with many restaurants serving a variety of fares.
