I have been there couples of times embarked on a vessel and passing under it. During night the lights of the bridge and those from luxury buildings on the both sides of the strait gives you a view that you will not forget. I passed this bridge also by car during my 3 months Erasmus stay when i had a... More

As a tourist it is a must see and you have to make some pictures of that, but you can see that from a million points in the city so it is really hard to lose, no need to go ON it or to take the time to go THROUGH that.

The brigde are more symbolic than impressive. Recommending to see it from Asian side, and try to put yourself in the mood to understand how important this connection between east and west means.

Its really an amazing "must see" place in Istanbul. The Bosphorus bridge connect Europe and Asia. In the view, it's like the Golden Gate Bridge. We cruised the Bosphorus Strait and we passed under this bridge. It is definitely recommend this to my friends and colleagues to visit this bridge while in Istanbul.

This one was a very big hanging bridge. Very beautifully decorated with lights in the night. This bridge separates Europe and Asia.

We visited Istanmbul for a business and we had limited time to explore this beautiful city well. However we visited the main spots of this old City. One of the places I liked in this city was Bosphorus Bridge. There are great views of the Bosphorus strait and Sea from the bridge. I liked mostly the yachts, vessels and chips... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
