What Is Karmiel

Karmiel, founded in 1964, is the commercial, educational, cultural and industrial hub of the Western Galilee. Situated on a major east-west highway in a valley, separating the upper and lower regions of the Galilee, its location is central with respect to the major population centers of Northern Israel.
There are 70 parks in the city, grassy areas, boulevards, sports equipment and playgrounds, as well as educational and cultural institutions which give the residents a good quality of life in a well-developed, quality environment.

The International Dance Festival takes place during 3 magical days and nights in July. Some 250,000 people take part in the dance festival. During the Succoth Holiday the Health Through Nature Festival is held, covering all aspects of alternative medicine.

Karmiel's open, roomy amphitheater has a capacity of 25,000, and serves as the location for major events: the Dance Festival, Independence Day Celebration and concerts. During the summer months, the Municipality sponsors cultural activities and open
dances in the various neighborhoods.

Karmiel has a public library for adults and children which houses more than 70,000 volumes. There are also many activities in the various Immigrants' Clubs in the city.

A community of close to 50,000, Karmiel is a planned modern city consisting of self-contained neighborhoods. It is the home of ORT Braude College and a Performing Arts Cultural Center.

A quality city in the galilee

Karmiel is a young city (38 years old) located in the heart of the breathtaking landscape of the Galilee.

The city was well planned from the beginning and shows distinct signs of the consideration taken to make the city comfortable and friendly to its residents.

The high quality of living in the city stems from environmental, educational and cultural quality, and an emphasis on quality free time, all of which create a friendly atmosphere for children, young people as well as adults.

Walking around the streets of Karmiel we are impressed by the quality of the building, the high standards, the landscaped areas and parks spread around the city and by the cleanliness of the city.

Karmiel's population in 2002 is 50,000 residents. The master plan calls for a population of 100,000 within the next 20 years.
