Tel Aviv’s Habima Square is not just a popular meeting point in the White City – it’s a gateway to a whole lot of culture.

That’s because the square – also known as Orchestra Plaza – is surrounded by major institutions such as the Habima National Theatre, the newly refurbished Charles R. Bronfman Auditorium (home of the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra) and the Helena Rubinstein Pavilion for Contemporary Art, a branch of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.

The sunken garden and reflecting pool, where you can relax while listening to classical music, are favorite hangout spots for families, couples and kids. And because Habima Square is located at the intersection of Rothschild Boulevard and Dizengoff Street, visitors always have plenty of choices in eateries and entertainment, thanks to outdoor buskers.
