Shtroudl haifa downtown
Uploaded by Asya Praisman

This is one of the legendary restaurants of the lower city. Its atmosphere is the business center of Haifa in the 60s and 70s. Its menu is special dishes of the northern eastern cuisine combined with good European traditions of the British Empire. Locals say that here you need to try a special dish: Harek Osbao. It is a winter dish based on lentils and pomegranates, served with fried dough, onions and plenty of coriander and garlic. They say that the dish got its name, meaning "burning in the fingers", because people can not resist and start eating with their hands - put their fingers in the pot to try it, despite the burning sensation in their finger tips.

Aroma cafe
Uploaded by Asya Praisman

The building in which the Aroma Café of the Israeli World Network (No. 8) comfortably settled used to serve the Dick family. Abraham Dick (1848-1917), the father of the family came to Israel from the Caucasus. The company he owned was founded in Haifa in 1878. The company was engaged in a number of cases, but mainly imported agricultural equipment and was then one of the largest in the country. The company was later inherited by Timothy (Timothy) Lange (1869-1947) and Gottlieb Schumacher (1857-1925). Timothy was the son of Anna Lange (1843-1930) of Abraham Dick’s sister. And Gottlieb Schumacher - Maria's husband from the house of Lange - Anna's sister. Their house was built at the end of the 19th century and stretched over 4 levels: 2 main floors (about 170 square meters), an attic and a basement (about 100 square meters). At the entrance are arched passages and large windows in which agricultural machinery and goods were exhibited. At the top of the building you can observe the gable, which characterizes the architecture of the Templars - the religious German Christian community, who founded the colony itself at the end of the 19th century. As in many other houses in the colony, it was customary to engrave inscriptions from the Old Testament above the entrance door. On this house is the inscription "EBEN EZRA 1893". This is a year of construction and a psalm: "And Samuel took one stone, and put it between Mitzpoi and Shane, and called it Even-Aizer (Help stone), and said: the Lord helped us to this place." Today, the expression symbolizes the help of God (like the expression "with God's help"). Opposite the house there used to be the Carmel Hotel, then the bus station, now the hotel complex is being built again. Translated with Google Translate

The colony hotel
Uploaded by Asya Praisman

The hotel building was built in 1905 by the Christian family Epener from the Templar community, which founded the German colony in Haifa in 1869. Two sisters, Christine and Helena, ran the hotel until the early 1940s. Their brother Gottlieb Epener, who owned a horse-drawn carriage workshop, assisted them in the administrative and financial management of the hotel. Near the hotel were planted the first in the German colony of Washington palm trees. They are famous for their great height and, they say, served as a guide for guests, so that you can always easily find a hotel. The archives of the Schumacher Institute, located in Haifa and exploring the history of the city, mention the way of life in the German colony of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The archival records speak of the Sisters of Epener, as well-known culinary specialists, whose restaurant located at the hotel was in great demand among the guests of the colony and was popular among British officers until the liquidation of the German community in the 1940s - World War II. Also interesting is the fact that the Peel Commission (the British Departmental Commission that resolved the partition of Palestine) was located in this hotel for a long time. The British Government of Palestine decided to deport a large part of the German community to Australia as a result of the open support of the National Socialist Party of Nazi Germany. The property was more nationalized and subsequently acquired by private individuals. In 1950, Samuel Drezner, a Jew who survived the Holocaust, bought a hotel and worked under his leadership until 1978. In December 2006, the building was acquired by a construction company and repaired, fully preserving its historical appearance (the restoration was carried out under the supervision and supervision of the Department for the Preservation of Historical Monuments of the Haifa City Hall). The hotel’s design maintains the building’s original atmosphere, including terracotta tiles, original wooden balustrades, windows, wooden shutters and a general style that matches the character of the building. Many bathrooms have a four-poster bath, wooden windows and blinds are preserved in accordance with the original, the rooms have old-style oak furniture, and the original floor tiles from 1905 have been preserved in many rooms and corridors of the hotel.

Restaurant "Dozan" is an institution that has absorbed the culture of the east in combination with Western traditions. This restaurant is located in the historic corner of Haifa, built by the Knights Templar in 1870. The owner of "Dozan" - Fadi Nadzhar, personally developed the design of the restaurant, in which time had to stop. He collected antique furniture from Europe, whose age reaches 120 years. The main idea of this restaurant was to unite Jews and Arabs in the cozy homely atmosphere of a European restaurant. In the menu "Dozan" you can find different types of cheese from Italy and France, English breakfasts, a large selection of salads, pasta, meat dishes. Translated with Google Translate

Haifa city museum
Uploaded by Asya Praisman

Today, after the restoration of the building in 2000, the Haifa City Museum is located in it. The building itself was built in 1869 and became the first stone house of the Templar community in the Holy Land. It was the house of the national assembly, the hall for sermons and meetings, the school and the local council at the same time. The bells from the annex above the facade proclaimed meetings. It is said that Kaiser Wilhelm spoke to people from a balcony during his visit to the Holy Land in 1898. Above the entrance, as usual, there is a quotation from the holy scriptures, this time the dog is mentioned: If I forget you Jerusalem, may I lose my right hand. Translated with Google Translate
