Walking in Ha'atzamaut street
Petah Tiqwa is the place i live.
It is not the most touristic place in Israel and some jealous vt members told me that it is not a must see activity but still this is my home...the place i love.
I was born in petah tiqwa (the meaning of this name is "entrance of hope" or something like that) and all of my life i lived here.
Petach-Tikva was founded in the year 1878 (on 8/8) by a group of pioneers from Jerusalem.
This is one of israels oldest cities.
Because it is an old city you will find here some beautiful sights (although not too many).
Additional to this , Petah Tikva is a High-Tech city with many famous companies like IBM , Intel , Alcatel , ECI with branches here.

Tel Aviv is the biggest city in Israel , a lot of places to see , old and new places like Jaffa or Rotschild avenue , good restaurants , sea , places to dance and a lot more.
For tourists this is great place to meet israelis or just enjoy our country.
Like i wrote , there are many attractions here on Tel Aviv - Beautiful architecture (Bauhaus , Eclectic styles , old places like Neve Tsedek and Florentin , new places like the Harbour area , good food - from fancy restaurants to fast food , places to drink and dance , great beaches , street markets and prestigious stores.

Here you will find a lot of attraction and must-see things - Synagogues , mosques , churches , old and narrow streets , beautiful architecture , old cemeteries , markets and holy feeling.
There is the old city and the newer city "outside the walls".
Eilat is a small city on the south of israel located on the shores of the red sea with view to Jordan and Egypt.
