Netanya is a young and not boring resort in Israel
There are a lot of cities named after monarchs, generals and politicians in the world. The city, named after the American multimillionaire, the owner of a large trading network, is probably the only one in the world. And it is not in the United States, but in Israel. This is the largest Israeli resort, the city of Netanya on the Mediterranean coast. The city appeared here in 1929 and is named after its founder, Nathan Strauss.

About 200,000 people live in Netanya; it is a large center of the jewelry industry (diamonds and diamonds are processed here). By the way, jewelry in Netanya can be bought at fairly “gentle” prices.

But the main occupation of Netanyans is, of course, serving tourists, in the beach season, and it lasts from May to October, the number of residents of the city rises to half a million. At this time, it is almost impossible to settle in a hotel or rent an apartment in Netanya. Even on the beaches, and their total length here is more than 11 kilometers, during the season it is difficult to find a “place under the sun”. Although tourists visit the warm coast of Netanya, not only during the season – visitors can see visitors all year round on the central beach “Sironit”.

The “Jewish flavor” is the main thing that characterizes this rather large, by Middle Eastern standards, city. And considering the fact that Jews have been coming to Netanya from almost all over the world for almost a hundred years, most of all from Poland, the Balkan countries and the former USSR, this flavor plays with the most vivid, sometimes unexpected reflections of traditions and customs of different countries. And tourists can see this through a rather unusual event – the program “Meeting with the Israelis.” The program allows tourists to visit the home of any resident of Netanya – a friendly reception, a cup of coffee and informal conversation are guaranteed!
Netanya is a relatively young city, not rich in architectural and natural monuments. But there are sights here, the main one is Caesarea National Park, the ruins of an ancient fortress city. True, those who have been to Caesarea avoid calling this national park “ruins”. An ancient city that has changed many owners for more than two thousand years, from Persians, Crusaders and Turks to modern Israelis, the city vividly demonstrates its rich history to tourists.
The network of city streets is clearly visible, the Banniy complex, the ancient synagogue, the Palace on the reef, the amphitheater are amazing. The picture of the “connection of times” naturally complements the bright oriental bazaar.
Fans of active, including night, rest, too, can safely go to Netanya. Tourists are waiting for numerous restaurants and restaurants with Jewish and international cuisine. Discos, bars and nightclubs do not close until early morning. Lovers will find lovers of riding, squash, bowling, and tennis here. During the season in Netanya, various festivals and holidays are going on. In short, Netanya is a young city and not at all boring!
