Rothschild Boulevard, Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv, District, Israel

Tel Aviv’s Rothschild Boulevard is one of the most iconic and popular streets in the city. Located right in the center of town.

Stretching from the Neve Tzedek neighborhood, intersecting with Herzl and Allenby streets, until it reaches the Habima National Theater. With tons of restaurants, historic centers, bars, night clubs, street performers, dog walkers, skateboarders, and playing children, the boulevard is a place full of energy.

But not only is it full of action, it is full of history. Tel Aviv’s history dates back to the creation of Rothschild Boulevard, and we’ve got the brief summary here. It all happened over 100 years ago in 1909 when Tel Aviv was founded on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. Around 66 founding families decided to participate in a lottery. Each would chose a shell with plot numbers etched inside to determine their plot of land.

They began to build their homes. A draining system was built on top of sand dunes to drain the small wadi. They decided to construct on both sides of the street, leaving the center for pedestrians, therefore creating the city’s first boulevard. Originally named Rehov Ha’Am, meaning the street of the people, in 1910 it was changed to Rothschild Boulevard, in honor of philanthropist Baron de Rothschild.

Rothschild Boulevard holds many of Tel Aviv’s iconic monuments. Independence Hall is located right on the boulevard. This is the site where Israel’s first Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, declared the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. Rothschild also had the city’s first kiosk, which is still a coffee kiosk today, and Tel Aviv’s first street light.
