Kikar HaMedina and its surrounding neighborhood are well known as one of Israel’s most prestigious areas to live, and indeed some of Tel Aviv’s most expensive residential and retail real estate can be found on its streets.
Situated just east of Ibn Gavirol St in the Northern edge of the city, Kikar HaMedina is a large circular thoroughfare with an immense public park at its center, with a number of side streets radiating off the square itself. Surrounding the square one will find some of the world’s best known designers, including Burberry, Ralph Lauren, Chanel, Versace, and Gucci, alongside luxury boutiques such as Blue Bandana, Padani, and Philosophy. Besides world-class shopping, Kikar HaMedina offers luxury apartments and private villas along its quiet side streets, offering a pastoral atmosphere, a rare thing in Tel Aviv. A short walk away from the square lies Yehuda HaMaccabi Street, one of Tel Aviv’s most beloved streets where one will find an array of cafes, gourmet shops, and boutiques as well.
