Spanning three hectares of beachside parkland, nine enormous igloo-shaped domes
pop into view along Haifa’s Hahagana Boulevard – temporary additions to the
coastline that have drawn 150,000 visitors in the past four days.
the domes are thousands of flowers bursting with color from all over the world,
each arrangement boasting a different theme and part of the city of Haifa’s
International Flower Exhibition in Park Hecht. The flower exhibition, the
largest ever to be held in Israel, follows a similar festival the municipality
held 19 years ago.
“It’s especially exciting to return the wonderful
International Flower Exhibition to Haifa with the coming of spring and the great
blossoming,” said Haifa Mayor Yona Yahav, in a statement released by his office.
“Beyond the tremendous sensory experience, this is a real culture of recreation,
travel, studies and observation of nature. To enjoy from rare creations of real
life in an era of digital-technology is more than a great privilege; it is also
a requirement for us and for our children.”
