Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Turkey  /  Istanbul  /  Beyoglu

Beyoglu, Istanbul

4.1
#4 of 19 in Neighborhoods in Istanbul
At Beyoglu Europe and Asia are closer than anywhere else in the city. Located on the Golden Horn bay, on the European side of the city, the neighborhood has a long history of multiculturalism, as is clearly visible in its various architectural styles. From the Genoese and Venetian merchants of the Middle Ages to the European diplomats and artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, to local Jews and Greeks, many different communities have left their mark on the area. Catch a ride on a historical tram or browse a selection of shops. While here, you can also visit the city's largest synagogue and Catholic cathedral, and see numerous museums, art galleries, and theaters. Bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and cafes range from traditionally Turkish to distinctly European here. Beyoglu is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Istanbul Edition.
