Tel Aviv

A young city in an ancient land.

Tel Aviv is the youngest of the world's global cities. Though it has since grown to encompass the ancient port city of Jaffa, Tel Aviv itself was only founded in 1909, by Jewish immigrants. While Jerusalem--Tel Aviv's older, more uptight sibling--is the political and religious capital of Israel, Tel Aviv is Israel's economic and cultural capital. The city, which stretches along the Mediterranean coast, early on developed a sleek, modern look, as many architects associated with the Bauhaus and International styles helped to develop the city in the 1930s. More recently, many large skyscrapers have been added to the city's skyline, such as the Moshe Aviv Tower and the Shalom Meir Tower. These newer skyscrapers contain many of the businesses associated with the city's booming technology-based economy. Tel Aviv is not all work, though; it has plenty of room for play. The city is known for its active nightlife, which is dominated by clubs such as Haoman 17 and the Dome, where electronic music booms late into the night.
