  • The building itself is really impressive, which cannot be said about the Museum. The entire Museum is 2 small rooms, which include a variety of securities. I am glad that the visit was free.

  • Thirty years ago Bankalar Caddesi, and hence the most vibrant business centers of İstanbul, Karaköy. Especially in the early part of the 19th century, a great number of Established Banks Street that banks not only İstanbul Turkey here, who centers the most important financing Center. Especially with the splendor of one of the magnificent buildings of the Bank continues even today. However, the importance of the region in the last 30 years, most of the banks, or closed with losing or moved to other locations. I've done this tour and as far as I can tell, the street is full of sadness sez to clad. But instead of the old Ottoman Bank in the street again with opening of Galata-only opened horizon, almost made the correct items symbolize a cultural center. It's very important to Istanbul and works of the famous French-born architect Alexandre Vallauri gives the Ottoman Bank and T. C has designed the Central Bank building and the building was opened in 1892. Central Bank of İstanbul main branch as devan. Salt as The Galata fidelity decor. There's been a great cultural center. Located in Galata-only sections; A magnificent library, Salt Mining, the Auditorium, the Ottoman Bank Museum, useful arts Office, Workshops, exhibition areas, child care, cafeteria. In particular, the Ottoman Bank, I would recommend that you see the remaining safe room. Entry Free. Every day open from 10:00-20:00. Go read a book appear.
