Tel Aviv located on the Israeli Mediterranean coast. Founded in 1909 in an area of sand dunes, it has developed into a center of high-tech industry and financial services – home to the country’s stock exchange.
The so-called White City area near the center houses more than 5000 modernist and art deco buildings, thanks to the influx of Jews from Europe in the 1920s. The flourishing Carmel market, in the heart of the city, sells fruit and vegetables, dairy products, bread and pastries, sweets, spices and local specialties such as olive oil, clothes, music and much more. On certain days there are also stalls selling art, craft and jewelry.
