Tel Aviv – Jaffa

Kilometers of sandy beaches, the golden coast, on which the waves of the turquoise blue Mediterranean Sea gently roll. Daily catch at the fishing port, open-air cafe on green glades and noisy streets.

From dawn to dawn on the Mediterranean coast, in countless restaurants, clubs, pubs, entertainment venues, life is in full swing.

There is no other city that represents modern Israel better than Tel Aviv, along with ancient Jaffa, where the biblical Jonah emerged victorious in the battle with the whale.

The magic of the Mediterranean Continue reading

Deserts in Israel are not dull tons of sand, but colorful mountains, deep canyons and caves created by wind, water and time. This is a carefully regulated living world, not emptiness, but space, incitement to contemplation.

Situated on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea from the bays between the mouths of the Crocodile Stream and the Hadera River, the city was undoubtedly once incredibly beautiful. Continue reading
