Rishon LeZion is located on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, 12 kilometers south of Tel Aviv.

The name of the city is translated as "First in Zion" and is taken from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah.

The city was founded in 1882 by members of the Hovevei Zion movement. He is one of the first Zionist settlements in Israel.

In 1887, Edmond James de Rothschild opened here the winery "Carmel Mizrachi".

In 1950, Rishon LeZion was given the status of a city.

In the 90s, with the arrival of aliyah from the CIS, the population of the city increased dramatically. In its western part, large residential areas appeared.

There are several industrial zones in Rishon LeZion.
