İstiklal Avenue

Local / Historical Markets

İstiklal Avenue (literally translated as Independence Avenue) is one of Istanbul's most famous and iconic avenues. The avenue is visited by nearly 3 million people in a single day of the weekend. Located in the historic Beyoğlu district, 'İstiklal' in short, is an elegant and young pedestrian street. The avenue is approximately 3 km long, and it houses restaurants, cafes, boutiques,music stores, art galleries,cinemas, patisseries and more.

On İstiklal Avenue, you'll be surrounded by history – the architecture reflects perfectly what historical periods the avenue went through. You'll see late Ottoman era buildings designed with the Neo-Classical, Neo-Gothic, Renaissance Revival, Beaux-Arts and Art Nouveau styles; as well as a number of recent examples of modern architecture. Start by taking the historic Tünel from Karaköy to Tünel Square, and make your way from the former Genoese neighborhood Galata to Taksim Square. 

It is highly advisable that you visit Çiçek Pasajı (Flower Passage) and Balık Pazarı (Fish Market) areas, and do some art-gazing at Salt, Arter or Pera Museum.
