Tel Aviv – Israel’s White City – is alive with culture and entertainment. From its historical Bauhaus Architecture, which was recently declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to the newly built Rose Cooper Israel Ballet Center, Tel Aviv has plenty to offer. Tel Aviv boasts 18 of the 35 performing art centers in Israel, including the HaBima National Theatre, which was founded in Moscow in 1918. It is home to the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the Eretz Israel Museum and the Diaspora Museum, the Israeli Opera, and the National Philharmonic Orchestra, to name a few. With one and a half miles of beaches Tel Aviv is a vacation paradise.
