Neve Tsedek, established in 1887, is Tel Aviv’s oldest neighborhood. Today it is one of the most beautiful areas in the city, which has become increasingly fashionable in recent years. Narrow quaint streets, colorful low houses with little inner courtyards, lots of greenery all create a village vibe. The beautiful mix of oriental architectural style with modern design has made the small enclave a major draw for artists and the bourgeoisie. Neve Tsedek is a genuine oasis of tranquility in the bustling city, a real estate and cultural hotspot.
Shabazi street is the main street through Neve Tsedek and, like many of the smaller side passages, is lined with unique boutiques, fascinating galleries, craft shops, cafes and restaurants.
Aside from the boutiques and restaurants dotting the area, there are quite a few cultural establishments and sites worth checking out, including museums, the famous Suzanne Dallal Center and HaTachana, the recently renovated train station complex.
