  • Is a place to relax! The square is surrounded by museums and mosques and restaurants and shops, but here, you can just walk around on the clean smooth pavement between trees and grassy areas, stop to read the plaques and kiosks explaining history and monuments, or just sit on a bench and people-watch: children at play; scantily clad women in 5” platform shoes; women completely covered from head to toe; entire families sitting together and eating sandwiches or roasted corn bough from push carts. Tourist police patrol the square but don’t seem to have much to do
  • Huge square with great views. Recommended to be visited during the morning and late at night to see the mosques lighted up. You cannot but feel a historic notion within this square.
  • Great atmosphere is this square. Paved pathways with 'squares' of grass to sit and relax. Great touristy atmosphere and a lot of restaurants along the square. Very clean and well maintained.
  • So beautiful, must visit in Istanbul. The mosque is so beautiful with worndeful interiors
  • Such a beautiful place with magnificent buildings, surrounding a big fountain. Beautiful during the day, it's even more during the evening with the whole flow of lights.
