Pinsteps. Fountain Zodiac Signs, Jaffa
Places to visit in Tel Aviv-Yafo. Languages: ru, en

The fountain of zodiac signs is another, relatively young landmark of the ancient city. The fountain was created by sculptors Varda Givoli and Ilan Gelber in 2011 (the design of the images was developed by Navot Gil). It is made of limestone of different densities and twelve zodiac signs are presented in it in its original form with a large share of humor. Istria of the signs of the zodiac and Jaffa is associated with a group of enthusiasts led by Abraham (Abrash) Shekhter, who turned the city, once destroyed by the British, into a beautiful oasis for artists, and already with them, it was decided to name the streets of the new city by the names of the zodiac signs . Thus was born the good tradition of the zodiac signs in Jaffa. 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.
