  • A jumble of railway-related objects, some with explanations, and some poor mockups of bits of the orient express. Train enthusiasts would want to stop in, and it's easy for anyone ti stop in since Sir...  more »
  • It's free, not particularly well laid out or displayed. But plenty of railway bits from the National system. The Orient Express plates were nice, and a one way ticket from London to Istanbul!  more »
  • Maybe I set my expectations too high. I was thinking of the Orient Express, art deco interiors and elegant architecture. All this must have been there at some stage. No longer. The station is only use...  more »

  • Great museum to learn all about the train that once connected Asia (through Istanbuk) to modern day Paris. The museum hosts a massive collection of antique pieces and models of train tracks and routes. Highly recommended. A person is also available to answer any inquires for free.
  • Inaugurated as the terminus of the Orient Express from Paris in 1890, Sirkeçi Station fuses French Art Nouveau elements and Ottoman architectural details
  • If you are a fan of railroads and trains, this won't be your favourite museum but it is still full of interesting and beautiful artefacts. Don't forget to check.
  • Museum has many artifacts from the country's railroad heyday: uniforms, tools, books, maps, communications tools, and even a multiple unit cab. Highly recommended for anyone near Eminönü/Sirkeci.
  • Here you can find a automatic luggage storage. Also it's old building, interesting to see.

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.
