NAME THAT COUNTRY Episode 62

The architecture around Bialik Square is a small representation of thousands of Bauhaus buildings built in the 1920s and 30s in the largest and first modern city of our mystery country. Because of the large collection of Bauhaus buildings, many of which were whitewashed to keep them cooler in the Mediterranean heat, this original area of the city is known as the White City and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Bialik Square is named for the national poet, Chaim Nachman Bialik, whose home, now a museum, is just off the square, on a street which also carries his name. The white building pictured is the recently restored former Town Hall, now a museum and civic center.
