Inside the Ahuzat Bayit neighborhood, the first to be built in the city of Tel Aviv, is the street named after Baron Edmond James de Rothschild. This is one of the city's main arteries and all along it are historic buildings, cafes and main entertainment sites.
The eclectic architectural style of the buildings tells the story of a city that rose up out of the sands and the magnificent mansions that were home to the city's founders: Eliahu Golomb House, the domed Ben Nahum Hotel and Dizengoff House, the home of the city's first mayor, where Israel's first prime minister, David Ben Gurion, declared the establishment of the State of Israel.
Alongside these are homes built in the 1930s, in international style, also known as Bauhaus, white cubic houses adorned with superfluous decorations that gave this city its name, the White City.
