  • The best spot for photography as Hagia Sofia and Sultanahmet are either side of you. Make sure to visit the square late at night, as the colourful fountains will make a perfect spot for photos.  more »
  • Buy some chestnut of sweetcorn and have a short rest during sightseeing run. Many local families go there to meet friends. Nice view of Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque at dusk and dawn.  more »
  • This place deserves to be visited at different times of the day, I went for the first time of the day and then I visited this evening and was the most!

  • 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.
