This must-see white neighbourhood is considered an open-air monument to the Bauhaus style.
The light of the city.
The so-called "White City" is a moniker that applies especially to a Tel Aviv neighbourhood built between the 1920s and 1940s, when the city was in full boom and prosperity mode. The result was the world's largest group of buildings - some 4,000 - constructed in the innovative Bauhaus style characterised above all by white walls and rounded corners (adapted as needed to Mediterranean conditions from their central European origins, of course). Many subsequently fell into disrepair but have been and continue to be restored and refurbished. In 2003 they were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. You may find many of these building on streets such as Rothschild, Bialik, and Dizengoff.
