There has been a settlement present in this particular part of the Mediterranean coast for over four thousand years, although Tel Aviv itself was first founded in 1909, away from the old city of Jaffa. However, over the years the small settlement continued to grow, and eventually became large enough to absorb the old city. Today Tel Aviv is the second largest city in Israel, and not only boasts a liberal atmosphere, but also a wonderful architecture, which has earned the city UNESCO recognition, and the charming nickname of the 'White City'.
