Photos on display reveal people's lives, natural landscapes and the city charms of China's Tianjin and Israel's Rishon Le-Zion.
The exhibited photos also reflect the development and cooperation achievements of economy and society between the two cities, which deepens cultural integration between China and Israel.
This year marks the year of cultural exchanges between Tianjin Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism and the China Cultural Center in Tel Aviv, with many cultural communication events planned on the schedule, according to the hosts.
In the future, as an international-brand event, The First Twin Cities Story Cultural Exchange Photography Exhibition will continue to develop, giving more Israeli people the chance to experience the charm of Tianjin, and feel the profound traditional Chinese culture it has to offer.
