The Jaffa Railway Station was built in 1892 as part of the construction of the first railway line between Jaffa and Jerusalem. Before the First World War in 1914, the station and the railway were operated by a French company, which acquired the exclusive right granted to him by the Turkish ruler Abed al-Hamid in 1888 from the Jewish businessman Yosef Navon. In those days, the railway between Jaffa and Jerusalem experienced wonderful days. Despite the slow 4-hour journey from Jaffa to Jerusalem, the train used an increasing number of passengers. Among them were merchants, tourists and pilgrims. Among them were not a few famous personalities. For example, the seer of the state of Israel, Benjamin Zeev Herzl. Translated with Google Translate

Tel Aviv from its beginning back to Jaffa

One of the most interesting pages in the history of Tel Aviv and Jaffa is the relationship of cities throughout the twentieth century. Jaffa has been a large port city for centuries, and Tel Aviv was only conceived in 1909. The first railway in Palestine was built between Jaffa and Jerusalem when Tel Aviv was not yet there. The Manshia quarter - at the junction of Jaffa and Tel Aviv - ceased to exist during the war for the Independence of Israel. Jaffa became part of the booming Tel Aviv, but retained its identity. All these stories will be told by the route from Mitham aTahan - the old railway station, across the Manshia embankment to ancient Jaffa to the top of the hill of Abrashi Park, where today the most beautiful and most famous view of Tel Aviv and Jaffa opens.
