Ortaköy

Local / Historical Markets

Once a quaint fishing village, Ortaköy today it is an romantic waterfront neighborhood located in the   European bank on the Bosphorus. During the Byzantine and Ottoman era, Ortaköy was a highly cosmopolitan area; housing Turks, Jews, Greeks and Armenians. You can find a mosque, a Greek church and a synagogue within a few steps' distance from each other.

Today, Ortaköy is famous for its cobblestone streets lined with art galleries, night clubs, cafés, bars, and restaurants. The neighborhood is hugely popular both among locals and tourists, especially on sunny weekends.

When you visit, be sure to check out the Ortaköy Mosque - this beautifully ornamented Neo-Baroque style mosque was built in the 18th century, and came to look as it does now with its 19th century revisions. Also, don't forget to have kumpir (baked potatoes with your choice of toppings) and drink tea or play tavla (backgammon) in one of the many cafes. Find all Bosphorus restaurants and cafes to fully have a Bosphorus experience.
