A northern Israeli port city, Haifa is the 3rd largest city after Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, with a population of about 281,087 folk meandering its winding uphill streets that fan out from the Mediterranean up the slope of Mount Carmel. Haifa is known for its iconic landscaped terraces of the Bahá'í Gardens where the gold-domed Shrine of the Báb can be found in the center. At the foot of these gardens is an old German Colony flush with shops, restaurants and galleries perched in 19th Century buildings. A UNESCO World Heritage Site where the Bahá'í pilgrims gather, Haifa has a history going back more than 3,000 years. The city is about 90km north of Tel Aviv and home to 2 major education institutions, the University of Haifa and the Technion, as well as the largest K-12 school in Israel, the Hebrew Reali School. It's also where you will find the largest and oldest high-tech park in the country, so it's no wonder coworking venues are buzzing venues of tech savvy souls collaborating and getting creative.
Israel's tech scene is growing fast to the point where it is being labeled the "Startup Nation" because of the huge number of entrepreneurs and tech companies in a country that has 9 million people. The government is taking steps to support its creatives with plans to invest US$25.6 million into small and medium-sized businesses. Israel has already produced a large number of successful tech companies, such as the social navigation app "Waze" that sold to Google in 2013 for US$1.15 billion.
Haifa with its big population of tech savvy souls who hang out in collaborative bliss at coworking venues is a vibrant and dynamic cultural hub that offers everything one could hanker for from an artist colony for those who like to splash a bit of paint around to the Mount Carmel National Park for when you need some inspiration in the wilds.
