  • On the shores of the Bosphorus in Istanbul is one of the more beautiful and quaint mosques. Views and location super nice. Refurbished its very good. Have a wander around the walkway around the front side, where usually every hour of the day, you can see our citizens fishing with a fishing rod. When you go down to the coast Üsküdar sides surely I would recommend that you see in this mosque.

  • Love the view from this mosque, it's right by the sea and close to maiden's tower.
  • A neat little mosque
  • Semsi Pasa mosque built by Architect Mimar Sinan...
  • Nice
  • Asparagus mosque. Master Architect Sinan. Upon its release in piles on the beach in Üsküdar editing Camimizde due to subsidence and cracks. Mimar Sinan's bones are sore. Ceddimize strive to take charge and we don't respect. The walls, shrines, fountains, Mosque, old houses and other historic part of neglected and much of will is devastated by azımsanmı, some old streets are becoming places of garbage collection. Boğazımızda garbage floats. All of these situations, your State and transferring the necessary authorities, diligence I believe showing up.

Where to stay in Istanbul

The bustling downtown core of old Istanbul is the popular choice among tourists wanting a short walking distance to the city's biggest attractions. Here you'll find hostel-style accommodations and reasonably priced and traditionally decorated hotels, as well as bed and breakfasts and inns with views overlooking the sea. Though often the most affordable, accommodations in the old city can be very overrun with tourists and street solicitors. If you seek a more relaxed stay, consider lodging near Taksim Square. This new, trendy neighborhood is a short 15-20 minute ride from the old city, but puts you closer to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Though the newer area of the city is a bit more upscale, you'll also find moderately priced hotels and some hostels. Look for luxury hotels in the western suburbs close to the airport, overlooking the banks of Bosphorus.
