Tel Aviv Central Bus Station is notoriously known as one of the ugliest buildings in the city. If you can avoid it and use alternative terminals, you definitely should. But if you feel like getting a glimpse of Tel Avivian slums or have no choice but to use public transport from CBS, you can benefit from the art project on the top floor.
Actually it may be quite a challenge to get to 7th floor due the terminal’s bulky interior and design, which make it hard to navigate indoors. But I believe it’s so ugly and clumsy that it becomes fascinating in terms of spotting. The 7th floor contains 2 wings – “Dan” for domestic routes and “Egged” for intercity routes. Transfer between them is possible via the 6th floor, please keep it in mind, cause probably you will make it to the wrong wing at first, trust me!
The permanent graffiti exhibition can be found in the Dan wing of the 7th floor, it opened in June of 2013 and from time to time more art works have found a home here. This art project brought a new vibe to the floor, which used to be grey and psychedelic. Currently more than 160 artists from all over the world have placed art works here.
P.S. If you’re visiting here during sunset hours, go out to the platform’s edge and enjoy a beautiful panorama view.
