Tål Aviv or Tål Aviv-Yafôa – an Israeli municipality created in 1949. It lies on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea, stretching 13.5 kilometers.

From its founding in 1909, it was considered the Hebrew quarter of the ancient city of Jaffa and was called Akhuçat-Baît. The present name was given to Tall Awlia in 1910. It was decided unanimously by a vote of the inhabitants. In translation from the Russian language, Òëlle Aviv – «Spring Haven, «Spring Haven.

In time, the quarter developed and became a city that welcomed German, Russian, and Polish Jews, many of whom subsequently settled in the city. In the 1930s, the city began to be massively developed with the goal of providing affordable housing, designed by architects from Germany. The streets in the city were either parallel to the sea or oblique to it. The houses were built of concrete in two or three stories. The buildings of that time have been recognized by UNESCO as cultural heritage.

Tael-Aviv continued to grow and develop, gradually becoming the main Jewish center of Palestine. In 1948 the Council of the People decreed the creation of an independent Israel as Tel Aviv. But in time, when the War of Independence ended, Jerusalem became the main city of Israel.

The Parliamentary Assembly (the Parliamentary Assembly – the Parliaments), the first of its kind in Tel Aviv,   The meeting took place first at the City Museum, then – at the Cinema &quo;Coss » and at the Jean-Romeau Hotel. It was not until 1949 that the Israeli Cultural Council established itself in Jerusalem. In the same year the unification of Jaffa and Tel Aviv took place, then the center of the state economy.

Today, Täll-Aviville has grown and merged so much with its neighboring cities that it is difficult to define the boundaries between them. Tall skyscrapers and low-rise buildings, the rush of the northern city and the hollowness of the southern part – these are the contrasts of the contemporary Tilles-Aviv.

In Òål – Aviva has almost all of the foreign countries embassies, the university, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of the Diaptera, concert halls, galleries, and theaters. The Museum of Art is popular with tourists.
