Tel Aviv Sights

Beit Bialik (Bialik House)

Updated 05/29/2013

Fodor's Review

Spiffed up for the city's centennial, Bialik House is the charming two-story home of Chaim Nachman Bialik (1873–1934), considered the father of Hebrew poetry. The original bold colors were restored, as were many of the original furnishings. Bialik was already a respected poet and publisher by the time he moved to Tel Aviv from Russia in 1924; in the remaining 10 years of his life, his house, built in 1927, became the intellectual center of Tel Aviv. It's said that when Bialik lived here, the street was closed to traffic in the afternoon in order to let him write in peace and quiet. English-language tours can be arranged in advance.
