Beyond Masada Bauhaus on the Mediterranean

An architectural tour of the 'White City' shows why this European style was such a good match for Tel Aviv of the 1920s and 1930s.

Tel Aviv has its share of museums, galleries, a safari park and a myriad of other tourist attractions. But one of the most striking among them is right there in front of you: the city’s trademark architectural symphony. It's a combination of neighborhood planning structure, along with a cacophony of international-style Bauhaus business and residential blocks.
