Pinsteps. "Casino" Bat Galim
Places to visit in Haifa. Languages: ru, en, he

Despite its name, this building has never been a casino, moreover, the concrete structure standing here is not a historical building. It all started back in the 20s of the 20th century when creating the Bat Galim quarter. Rosenfeld and Bonstein from Zichron Jacob stood at the origins of the creation of Bat Galim. In the 1930s, the already strong community decided to create something similar to a country club with a restaurant, an Olympic swimming pool, an open dance floor and a banquet hall. Moreover, a similar building with a similar name and goals, in those years, was already splendid on the Tel Aviv embankment. And what is Bat Galim worse? Rosenfeld, by the way, gave his mansion (on the contrary) in exchange for the name of the street by his name, and Bolstein and then his son were a replaceable gene. Director of "Casino" for many years. During English rule, the place flourished. English officers, beautiful girls, dances and concerts made this place a stone of attraction not only for the residents of the quarter but also for the whole city. After the independence of the country was declared, a cinema opened here and enjoyed great success, but over time, like the Telavivskiy Casino, as a result of scandals and litigation between managers and owners, the local went bankrupt and closed. Over time, the building fell into disrepair. There were attempts at restoration for the abolition of the city tax, but the municipality was greedy. Only many years later, wanting to give a second life to this project, the remains of a historic building were demolished and not an exact concrete copy of the complex was built, which became a silent monument rather than a revival of the original idea.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?
