Intro to Tel Aviv
Tel Aviv ranks as the second largest city in Israel after Jerusalem and is commonly known as “the White City”. The term white city has been derived from the fact that it has more than 4,000 erected structures built uniquely.
The city was founded back in approximately 1909 as a suburb, but it has gone through various developments and as of now it is a metropolitan city sitting on a large area compared to other cities in Israel.
Tel Aviv is positioned along the Mediterranean Sea coastline of the country and is projected to have a population of almost 500,000 people. Owing to the large numbers of people and the fact that the city sits on a strategic position, the city is regarded as the hub of economic and technological activities in Israel.
