One of the most famous streets in the city, Istiklal Street crosses several distinct districts and encompasses many sights of historical significance. Running from the medieval Genoese neighborhood surrounding Galata Tower to Taksim Square, the cosmopolitan street passes historical buildings such as the world's second-oldest subway station, Turkey's second-oldest secondary school, the flower passage, and the fish market. Many religious buildings, including mosques, synagogues, Roman Catholic churches, and a Greek Orthodox church also line the street. Stroll down the street to take in the Ottoman architecture from the 19th and 20th centuries. Put Istiklal Street at the forefront of your travel plans using our Istanbul trip itinerary maker.
