Ramat Gan was founded in 1921 to the east of Tel Aviv-Yaffo. It quickly outgrew its quiet village lifestyle with waves of immigrants. In the mid-1960s the Diamond Exchange District, known as Bursat HaYahalomim, was established by Moshat Schnitzer and it put Israel firmly on the map as far as exporting fancy-cut diamonds was concerned.

 

Ramat Gan travel tours are the best way to see the sights of the city with the informative assistance of a local guide. See the country’s tallest skyscraper, City Gate Ramat Gan; the national stadium and the Maccabiah sport village, built for the Jewish World Games which take place every four years. Almost 25% of the city is given over to public gardens and parks, adding to the tranquility of this smart city. The Safari Ramat Gan covers 250 acres and has the country’s largest zoo.
