Unlike other cities in Israel, Tel Aviv's history is negligible, but very interesting.

New repatriates, mainly from Eastern Europe, created the Akhuzat Bayt community. 66 families pooled a piece of desert near Jaffa with an area of 11 hectares. It was necessary to divide the land somehow. The resourceful chairman of the community, still a watchmaker, Akiva Arie Weiss collected 60 white and 60 gray shells. Some bore the site numbers, while others bore the names of community members. On April 11, 1909, the lottery took place, which went down in history as the  "lottery of shells" Since then, this date is considered the birthday of the city.

In less than a year, hardworking community members created a general development plan, laid the foundations of the first houses, and the Akhuzat Bayt quarter was renamed the city of Tel Aviv. There are two translations of this phrase: "mound of revival" or "spring mound", and both are quite consistent with the history of the city and country.

 Tel Aviv Embankment 

14 km of the coastal strip in Tel Aviv is decorated with the city embankment. Just like in  Haifa,  in addition to cafes and shops, here you will find a bunch of free exercise equipment, fountains with drinking water, parks where you can hide from the sun ... The embankment separates the high-rise city from the sea. Clean beaches, almost everything, free, with everything you need for a comfortable stay.

 Charles Krol Park 

In the southern part of the embankment, near Jaffa, there is a large park. Sir Charles Krol, a businessman, donated a park to the city as a sign of respect to his people. Now, this is where many city events start, and it's just that families with children have a great time.

Airport  Tel Aviv

The main and most important air gateway to Israel and Tel Aviv is Ben Gurion International Airport. It is located 14 km from the city, close to the town of Lod. At the moment, this airport is considered one of the safest, due to unprecedented measures to prevent terrorist attacks

The airport has two main terminals No. 1 and No. 3, between which special shuttles run. Telescopic ladders (“sleeves”) are used to make passengers board the aircraft as quickly and comfortably as possible. Moreover, during the passage to the aircraft, the sections are illuminated by natural sunlight. This is to prevent possible bouts of claustrophobia in passengers. Free shuttles run between the terminals every 10-20 minutes. Terminals 2 and 4 are currently closed.

  • TaxiA taxi ride will cost you a lot, but you can get to your destination in comfort. The taxi operates around the clock without breaks for Shabbat and holidays. You can order a car at a special counter in the arrival hall.

  • Bus If you want to get to the desired place by bus, then first you need to take bus number 5 to get to the airport-city stop. Then transfer to the city bus. Buses 405, 945, 423 and 947 go to Jerusalem and Haifa from 5.30 am to 11 pm every half hour, except for Shabbat. Bus 475 runs to Tel Aviv Central Bus Station. Remember to get a free shuttle ticket from the driver when you return to the airport.
    You can also take a minibus. The route taxi is very popular in Israel. Interestingly, the fare in a minibus, as a rule, does not differ from the price of a ticket on a bus, and sometimes even a little lower. Near the exit from Terminal 3, there is a stop for minibuses bound for Haifa and Jerusalem. Minibuses work around the clock, take you right to the door of the hotel or home.

  • Train The train station is very conveniently located on the ground floor of Terminal 3. During the day, trains leave every 20 minutes from 5:35 to 23:35. Save your train tickets until the end of the trip, there will be an electronic terminal at the exit.
