Why is Tel Aviv known as the White City?

Asked 3 years ago

Hi guys, we have been in Tel Aviv for a couple of days now and don't understand why it is called the white city?

Tel Aviv was given the nickname White City because of the high concentration of Bauhaus and international-style buildings. Tel Aviv has over 4,000 of these buildings from the 1930s. It is the "White" City because most of the balconies, window frames, flat rooves, and pillars of these buildings are white.
