This week, we’re looking at the history of Tel Aviv. Since its establishment, this city on the coast has developed a big name for itself. It’s Israel’s commercial and financial center, bursting with startups and home to some major global companies. But, it’s not all work, work, work. Tel Aviv is also a cosmopolitan hub of cultural and art… not to mention the party capital of the Middle East.

Not bad for a city that’s just over 100 years’ old.

But how did Tel Aviv develop from the original seashell lottery of 1909 that marked the founding of the city? What’s the connection with one of the founding fathers of urban planning? And why does the city has the largest concentration of Bauhaus buildings in the world?

Let us know what you think about Tel Aviv in the comments below.
