  • Strategic position where, at night, you can enjoy a wonderfull view of both SultanAhmet mosque and Hagia Sophia. Very secure place even late at night (police patrol 24/7.
  • Beautiful area with a very nice fountain that changes colours at night time. You can't go wrong looking at any direction, there's always something to see. Nice place to sit and people watch.
  • Very nice place, but try to walk there before 9am or in the evening. Otherwise, it's extremely crowded as all the guided tours are starting here.
  • Lively and busy place. Heartening to see many people busy visiting, taking photographs and enjoying the area.
  • Have you noticed the parrots in tops of the trees cracking nuts? This place has a great history, it was ancient Hippodrom, once you would like to know more, go to the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts, the exposition starts with this Hippodrom on display.
