Tel Aviv, Israel
Tel Aviv Old Railway Station
In the middle of the Tel Aviv ancient railway station built at 1892 standing this single wooden wagon at the end of the railway. Behind the wagon, these are the major station buildings including the departures and arrivals waiting hall and the office where passengers used to buy tickets and get the information needed for their journey.
One hundred years ago in this waiting hall pilgrims from all over the world used to wait for the the train to take them during their journey to the holy city of Jerusalem.
Tel Aviv first railway station built at 1892 is an historic train station located just off Neve Tzedek, at the junction where Tel Aviv dissolves into Jaffa. It was abandoned many years but had gone lately through a serious renovation process and now serves as a recreational site packed with cafes, bars and fashion boutiques. This place is called today - HaTachana.
The station is located near Jaffa and Neveh Tzedek neighborhood which is one of the first neighborhoods of Tel Aviv and has lots of charm and magic. It is almost like a small village, with a walking distance to the beach and to the shoreline.
Neve Tzedek is probably one of the trendiest neighborhoods in the city, with many buildings renovated in the original architectural style of the area, including this first train station that was built more than 100 years ago. This neighborhood was renovated in the 80s and today it is a picturesque and charming neighborhood where many of the original houses are still standing.
The beautiful mix of classic and modern styles has made this small neighborhood a magnet for creative artists, musicians and sophisticated young professionals, who live side by side with the working class residents who were born and raised at this place.
