a historical water tower built in eclectic style and design in 1925 by Engineer Arpad Gut.
The water tower is located at one of the highest points in the city of Tel Aviv and not is active anymore.
The city of Tel Aviv is an open air museum exhibiting an impressive display of international style buildings and Bauhaus architecture.
Tel Aviv was founded in 1909 by a group of 66 jewish residents of Jaffa. They envisaged a European style garden suburb, with wide streets and boulevards.
Due to the extensive Bauhaus architecture buildings, Tel Aviv was declared a World Cultural Heritage site by Unesco in 2003. This building style became frequent in the 1930s because the city architects had strong links to the European architectural trends.
As a modern metropolis Tel Aviv dates back only to 1909 but the city has around 20 museums, and hosts the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra and the Israeli Opera company, as well as most of the national dance and theater companies.
Tel Aviv is today he cultural and business hub of Israel and is an active city with lively entertainment, culture, art, fashion events, movie theaters, shopping malls, food festivals, a variety of cuisines and an attractive nightlife scene.
