  • Wonderful view! Although we were stopped from reaching the very top part of the roof by a “production company” that was taking the space and told us we have to pay 50 TL (8,5 EUR) per person if we want to take pictures there... Is that even real? Please explain! i think access should be given to everyone.
  • A rooftop with great view, located in a ceru ancient building. it is permanently closed and instead other rooftops are now used in the same location for perfect photos
  • It was built at 17th century and used as a business centre by iranian caravans. It also has a mosque for iranian shia muslims. More then 200 rooms were used as hotel and gave service to traders...
  • very beautiful markets with all the handmade stuff and also they sell real leather but you must take care you can get lost in there
  • Previously you could walk on it's rooftop with a unique view of Istanbul. Now it's closed due to safety reasons. But the atmosphere of a real old part of Istanbul bazaar is still worth to see. Also there is a cozy Caffe in first stairs where you can have a nice tea while looking at the golden horn.
