Taksim

Beyoğlu & Taksim

Taksim, in Turkish, means “division”. Taksim Square got its name from the Ottoman times, where the city’s water reservoir was here and each part of the city’s water got divided and distributed from here.

Square now serves as the busiest meeting point of the city, where both locals and tourists flock together to enjoy the various sights, restaurants and nightlife.

The Taksim Square is surrounded with cafes and restaurants, but at the starting point of the Istiklal Avenue, there is a group of lively fast food shops and their specialty is the world-famous “wet hamburger”.  These are a “must try”.

As you are crossing the square stop and take a look at the “Republic Memorial”, which was create by the Italian sculptor Pietro Canonica

Also across from the square you can see one of the most important Turkish Republic Era architectural works, the Ataturk Culture Center, which houses the Istanbul Opera and Ballet Company.
