The most active way of living day or night, Beyoğlu and Taksim Square have the busiest entertainment venues in Istanbul.
In order to meet the water demand of people living in the Bosphorus, a warehouse was built to distribute water to the surrounding districts. A small structure was built to disintegrate it, that is, to divide the water. Here is the name of the square Galata ”Beyoğlu water in that period was divided into“ that is distributed from Taksim name.
Taksim, before the square, formed by narrow streets, the old houses are listed as a neighborhood, after being turned into a star is shining and today's appearance is taking.
The Republic Monument and its surroundings in the middle of the square are used as the place where ceremonial ceremonies are held today. Taksim Square and Trafalgar Square for the British play the same role.

You can count at least thirty-five hotels from here, due to its proximity to Istiklal Street and Taksim, it is very advantageous for you to stay in the area. When you come down from Talimhane where there are many hotels, you arrive at Tarlabaşı.
”Tarlabaşı, Istanbul's hub“
There are many churches in the back streets of Tarlabaşı and Dolapdere. Unfortunately most of the special days are not closed and ritual outside. Some of them can only be seen on Sunday mornings.
Cihangir and Cukurcuma
The district, named after Cihangir the son of Suleiman the Magnificent, is one of Istanbul's favorite living areas due to its proximity to İstiklal Street.
Çukurcuma mosques with Cihangir and Firuzağa are just some of the districts where you can never forget. It is not known whether there is any other place that is preserved in such a central but also so much neighborhood specialties.
The most natural consequence of this is that the neighborhood chooses the cat as its icon. The district is one of the most characteristic examples of Greek architecture.
Do not be surprised to come across the children playing French games on the street while visiting Cihangir where there are a lot of foreigners settled in Istanbul. One of the busiest streets of Cihangir, Sıraselviler Street connects Taksim Square with Tophane.
When you walk a little towards the west from Firuz Aga Mosque, you will reach Çukurcuma. It is believed that the name was taken from Fatih Sultan Mehmed's first Friday prayers after the conquest.
It is known as the place where the best antique dealers are located. Ağa Hamamı, which you will see in Çukurcuma, which is still an enigma for many people, started to be built in 1562 in order to generate income for Fenerbahçe Lighthouse. Today, it serves tourists.
The best way to discover this place is to get lost in the narrow streets. Enjoy a different atmosphere from the modern rush of Istiklal Street within walking distance while wandering around the small local shops in Çukurcuma, where time stops for some.

Pera was the name given to the area around Istiklal Street, where foreign diplomats once lived and traders of European origin known as the Levantine. The houses in the 19th century were built from stone materials to be durable. Thus, extremely dangerous fires that have become a part of everyday life have been prevented.
In addition to the private collection on the first floors, it provides space for both national and international exhibitions on the other three floors.

The doors often adorn the photographs of the details of the works exhibited at that moment.

The oldest metro tunnel and its environs
The tunnel and its surroundings have been recalled thanks to the recent “historical discovery” trend in Istanbul. Not only did it be remembered, many buildings were restored and joined in our lives with new functions. It is possible to reach the “Tünel”, the second oldest subway in Europe and the first subway in Turkey, in the district where the quality restaurants of Istanbul are located.
The first part of Istiklal Street was popular on the side of Taksim Square, but later the demand changed and thanks to the new restaurants and venues opened almost every day, people discovered the south side of the street and recorded interest and enthusiasm in this direction.
To reach the tunnel, you have to walk along the street or take a tram from Istiklal Caddesi. The most enjoyable is to take the funicular side of the Karaköy tram stop and get off at Tünel square, the only stop of this old subway.
The tunnel, which was modernised in 2008, was constructed by Eugene Henri Gavand in France between 1871 and 1874 and was operated in 1875. Detailed information about the history of tunnel, the third oldest underground system in the world after London and New York is available in the newspaper which hangs at Karaköy stop.
Along the tram line at the end of Istiklal street, you will see a long chimney. From 1874 to 1970, this chimney was operated using generators that produced funicultural steam power.
