Tour Locations | The Electrifying Story of Gan HaHashmal and Its Architecture
Stop here for a moment in this small square. There used to be a town square here, which was called HaMoshavot Square.
Have a look at the cylindrical advertising column, displaying historical pictures from the first days of the square – a kind of miniature outdoor museum. From this point, horse-driven carriages - and later, buses - traveled to the Jewish colonies that flourished in the Land of Israel in the beginning of the 20th century. Even today, we can see dozens of buses here, zooming across this busy intersection. This helps us understand the centrality of Tel Aviv back in the day, as well as today.
When you're ready, turn to face the road you just crossed. Then turn right and make your way along HaHashmal Street. We're returning to the calmness of Gan HaHashmal.
