a skyline view of Neveh Tzedek, the first ever neighborhood of Tel Aviv, overlooking the old city of jaffa, and the fantastic Mediterranean sea. Spring time is in the air and the city is so colorful.
The red roofs of the small houses are shinning in the daylight and the sea is so blue.
Neve Tzedek is one of the trendiest neighborhoods in the city, with many buildings renovated in the original architectural style of the area, including the 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 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.
Jaffa, on top of the picture, is an historic city that has served as a port city for pilgrims heading to Jerusalem. The first citizens of Tel Aviv arrived by the sea and built their houses in this neighborhood, close to the shore line.
The old port of Jaffa claims to be the oldest port in the world, mentioned several times in the bible and its history is spanning over 3000 years.
The port is still functional today as a small fishing port, and currently serves as a recreational zone featuring cool restaurants, cafes and art galleries.
