Israel’s second largest city

Tel Aviv Israel itself is the second largest city in Israel after Jerusalem. It may be only an hour away but it may as well be a thousand years away culturally, socially and religiously.

If what you want is partying on the shores of a real Mediterranean city, Tel Aviv Israel is your place.


It is not the capital of Israel as many think, but is the capital of dining, entertainment and nightlife.

In the evening you may sit on an outdoor Paris style café and enjoy your Cappuccino or Café Hafuch as it is called in Israel and at the same time watch the beachgoers, joggers and dog walkers.

It is by far Israel’s financial capital. The Tel Aviv Stock Exchange operates here and it is home to many of the big companies of Israeli and foreign origin.

Most countries sadly do not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital therefore most or almost all foreign embassies are located in Tel Aviv or its suburbs.
