WHITE CITY

 

During the 1930s, Tel Aviv tripled in size from newly arrived European immigrants, who brought with them the German Bauhaus architectural style.  The clean urban lines were adapted to the Mediterranean climate, resulting in a cityscape of dazzling white buildings framed by an azure sea. In 2003, Tel Aviv’s White City was proclaimed a World Cultural Heritage site by UNESCO, in recognition of one of the world’s richest displays of Bauhaus design. The White City is The Norman’s neighbourhood, home to art galleries, the old city hall, the Gutman Museum and Rubin Museum.  The hotel is just a few meters from the famous Rothschild Boulevard, a tree-lined boulevard featuring pedestrian & bike paths, many historical Bauhaus buildings, trendy cafes, kiosks, bars and restaurants, and Habima Theatre, Israel’s national theatre.
