HaTachanah - Old Jaffa Railway Station, Tel Aviv-Yafo

Old Jaffa Railway Station was inaugurated in 1892 and served residents, soldiers, and travelers, until the Israel War of Independence. It was abandoned for many years and restored more than 100 years after its establishment. Now known as HaTachanah (The Station), the wonderful place is a gateway to the past and an elegant restoration project which revived all its surroundings.

It includes the preserved station, goods terminal, part of the railway, and two railroad cars. It also contains approximately 20 buildings that were originally built during the Ottoman rule or constructed by the Templers during the British Mandate. The renovated building was converted into restaurants, cafés, and luxury boutiques and the Station became one of the most beloved leisure centers in Tel Aviv.
