The city of Tel Aviv was founded in 1909 as the first ever modern Hebrew City. It’s name translates to ‘Hill of Spring’, and in the 108 years since it has stayed true to its meaning. Everything about this city is new and relevant to modern times, from its culture to its buildings and its food and its people. And yet, it has an air of relaxation, with many residents spending their time chilling under the Mediterranean sun, enjoying Tel Aviv’s long coastal stretches or dancing the night away at its pubs and discos. Here’s a look at some photos that showcase the beauty of this spring city by the sea.

Tel Aviv is as far as it gets from Jerusalem. This is a city with all of the modern world’s virtues, and vices. After all, it’s not for nothing that Tel Aviv is Called Sin City. Vibrant and welcoming to all, this city is the heart of modern Israel: fun-loving, laid-back and irreverent. NOW READ: Photos of Amman That Will Make You Crave for a Middle Eastern Getaway

The city is also called the Mediterranean Manhattan, for the cosmopolitan charm and hedonistic edge it shares with The City across the Atlantic. Its fine beaches are an immediate draw, but it also has its share of history, like the Bauhaus buildings that are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the historic Jaffa and its Arab heritage. It also has its art galleries, military museums, simple street food joints and quiet corners.
