One of the city's most important public spaces, and a showcase for its modernity.
Downtown and its hullaballoo.
Once known as Kings of Israel Square, this iconic plaza at the heart of Tel Aviv is one of the city's most important, and always abuzz with the to-and-fro of locals and tourists alike. But this space has long loomed large in the turbulent history of the city, especially when it comes to political demostrations and rallies. In fact, it was here that on November 4, 1995 Israel's then-president Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated, and for that tragic reason the square was renamed in his honour. On one side of the square is the city hall, with the other three sides formed by Boulevard Hen as well as Ibn Gabirol and Frischmann Streets.
