Kiryat Bialik is one of a quintet collectively called the Krayot. The others are Kiryat Haim, Kiryat Yam, Kiryat Motzkin and Kiryat Ata. Located in the Haifa Bay area at the foot of the Carmel mountain range, they are considered a suburb of Haifa and are compared to the relationship between Tel Aviv and Ramat Gan or Givatayim. But this comparison is not exactly accurate. The builtup areas of these three municipal entities are adjacent to one another and constitute one vast built-up area. In contrast, there are considerable open spaces between Haifa and the Krayot.In fact, there is even an airport in between them, Haifa Airport.
