  • From time to time to from Karaköy Şişhane business go past while walking the stairs I went cross this interesting look, sometimes I try to climb to as much as çıkabildiğim. Very cool and interesting. Story, too. Today, I stop and take a rest again, passing through the stairs as follows, where I said ... interesting.

  • Long before the trip to Istanbul I was walking look on a map, pointed to and subscribed for themselves what is interesting, you can see apart from the most famous attractions in Istanbul. My eye caught an unusual, seemingly not very grand staircase, which led to The Galata Bankers Boulevard (near the famous Galata Tower). Arriving once again in Istanbul, decided to see first of all, make an interesting photo. And have not regretted! The history of this ladder is that in the year 1860, the leader of the Jewish community in Turkey-Abraham Salomon Camondo (after whom it is named), made a gift of modernity by setting an amazing staircase, and thus decided to perpetuate the memory of himself. It was rumoured that in those days (before the establishment of the Camondo stairs), the townspeople served the usual staircase going down the Hill right on the roadway and often there have been cases of people falling under the wheels of transport if they inadvertently ostupalis' and fell down. Winding staircase Camondo gave no opportunity slide down in the fall. This is its uniqueness. In Turkish, its name sounds like "Kamondo Merdivenleri". Will gladly tell you how we got to it. We passed the street Istiklal towards The Galata Tower. Directly at The Galata Tower, we saw a pointer that points to the street Bereketzade Medreresi. Went for it, and here at the intersection of the streets with a bank prospectus (Bankalar caddesi) and our wonderful staircase! ))

  • The Ottoman Empire, in the end, commissioned by the banker of Camondo in Galata is the staircase staircase the most aesthetic you'll see in İstanbul.

  • It is a staircase, but an interesting one, with a history. Cool for photoshoots.
  • Underwhelming, looks better in photos. It's worth climbing to the top where you'll reach a nice small street with cafes.
  • Yanlış
  • Wrong location
  • Wrong position. Its actually located at Galata Tower Street.
