GALATAPORT OF ISTANBUL IS HERE!
Galataport of Istanbul, the new cruise ship terminal, has been completed and is in function.
Galataport Istanbul is a 1.7billion investment which gave 1.2kilometer long coastline to istanbulites.
The port has the world’s first underground cruise ship terminal. On a day when there is no cruise ship on the shore, you cannot see any signs of a terminal, it is a long promenade with an impressive view of the historical peninsula and the Bosphorus.
Galataport coastline is home to great restaurants and cafes. There is a museum to honor the photographs of the greatest photojournalist of Turkey, a 19th century clock tower, the modern art museum of the city, Istanbul Modern and an open air shopping mall in the complex.
Galataport already became an attraction point for the locals. It is crowded on the weekends.
