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.

Inside 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.”
