Tel Aviv is often incorrectly called the capital of Israel, but while the political capital is Jerusalem, Tel Aviv is undoubtedly the financial and cultural center of the country. Together with its ring neighborhoods, Tel Aviv comprises the agglomeration of Gush Dan — home for 45% of the Israeli population. Tourists primarily travel to Tel Aviv for its beaches, ranked some of the best on the Mediterranean, and night clubs. However, Tel Aviv is also no stranger to architecture, and connoisseurs know it as the capital of Bauhaus style, which got Tel Aviv designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Nearly all foreigners travel to Tel Aviv via Ben-Gurion International Airport. Despite a popular misconception, it is located not in Tel Aviv but in Lod, a neighboring satellite city; however, it is connected to Tel Aviv by a high-speed rail, and the journey takes around 15 minutes. Within Tel Aviv, there is an extensive network of bus lines; however, the light rail is still under construction and the metro is only in plans, so commuting is affected by traffic jams. For tourists who are only in Israel for a short period of time, this may become problematic.
