Balat District

Balat is one of the oldest and historically significant areas of the city. The colorful houses create a bright and picturesque atmosphere that attracts tourists from all over the world. Here you will be able to walk through the narrow streets, admire the Bosphorus and feel the atmosphere of old Istanbul. In the past, Balat was home to the Jewish and Greek communities, so here you can find their heritage in the form of synagogues, churches, and other religious buildings. The area is also known for its cozy cafes and restaurants where you can taste traditional Turkish dishes.

Emirgan Park (Emirgan Korusu)

One of the largest public parks in Istanbul, which is home to many interesting places, including various places, gazebos, landscaping, and even a mansion with vintage furniture. In April, on the territory of Emirgan, the Turkish version of the Tulip Festival takes place, when almost the entire park area is planted with different varieties of these flowers, creating an incredibly colorful spectacle. Today, the park becomes a true paradise for nature lovers and photographers. All its alleys and paths are decorated with bright colors, creating a bright and pleasant atmosphere.

Grand Bazaar (Kapalıçarşı)

The Grand Bazaar is one of the most colorful places in the city and one of the largest covered markets in the world. On the territory there are more than 44 streets, several fountains, a school and a bathhouse.

Takht Roof (Taht Istanbul)

It has become a popular location for fashion shoots and stylized photography. This place is especially popular with young people and photographers looking to capture the beauty of Istanbul and its symbolic atmosphere. Takht’s roof is paid and beautifully equipped especially for bright photography. The interior is decorated in the style of traditional Turkish tents, carpets and pillows create a unique atmosphere against the backdrop of stunning views of the Bosphorus.

Street of colored umbrellas Karaköy

Initially, the street of colored umbrellas was the exterior of one of the cafes, designed to attract attention, but then Karakoy became one of the hallmarks of Istanbul. Besides the floating umbrellas, this street has a lot of street art. Graffiti and drawings on the walls of the buildings attract the attention of passers-by and create a colorful atmosphere. Each work is unique and reflects the talent of local artists. In addition, in the street of the colored umbrellas you can find many souvenir shops, restaurants and cafes. This place has become popular not only with tourists, but also with locals who often come to Karakoy to spend time with friends or just recharge their good mood.

One of the most famous places in Istanbul is the Süleymaniye Mosque, which combines the beauty of architecture, historical importance and attractiveness for tourists. It is one of the most majestic mosques in Istanbul. Its architecture impresses with its exquisite details and majestic dimensions. The Suleymaniya Mosque was built in the 16th century by order of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent and is one of the most important monuments of Ottoman architecture. In addition, it became popular thanks to the Turkish TV series “The Magnificent Century”. It has gained great popularity in Russia and other countries, and many fans are eager to visit the places associated with its filming.

Sherefiye Cistern (Şerefiye Sarnıcı)

Remembering the trendy places of Istanbul, the famous Sherefiye Cistern cannot be ignored. It has existed for about 1600 years and is one of the main historical attractions of the city.
