The neighborhood of Talbieh is one of the most beautiful in Central Jerusalem and is thought of as one of the wealthiest with its magnificent old-world architecture and picturesque gardens. This can be seen in the number of important official buildings such as President’s House, the National Academy of Science, the Van Leer Institute, and the Prime Minister’s House. In the neighborhood, it is possible to see a rich variety of buildings from the Mandate period, as well as authentic Arab houses that have been expanded or have had additions made to their original structures. In Talbieh, many houses have been declared historical preservations. This is a quiet neighborhood with one-way streets and green gardens. The famous Rose Garden can be found on Pinsker Street.
