991798043447177378436Just over a decade ago, in July 2003, Tel Aviv’s “White City” – a historic and unique urban fabric – was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Downtown Tel Aviv has the largest concentration in the world of buildings designed in the International Style (better known as Bauhaus architecture), giving Tel Aviv-Yafo its special standing in the heritage of modern architectural culture.

Since then, the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality has marked UNESCO’s declaration every year through a series of White Night events that incorporate another added value of the city: namely, that it is a “nonstop city.”
