BOHEMIAN BEYOGLU NEIGHBORHOOD WALK
This residential neighborhood which was once inhabited by the non-Muslim population of the Ottoman Empire, was rediscovered by artists and famous actors over a decade ago.
Now, also popular with younger crowds including hipsters and young professionals, Cihangir is a neighborhood with streets that are lined up with trendy cafes, bars and restaurants.
Despite the inflation of coffee shops, this is still a residential neighborhood that has a serene yet cool vibe. The neighborhood is home to artists, writers, actors and of course expats who are drawn to the stunning views of the Bosphorus.
After you have a breakfast or coffee here, you will walk towards Çukurcuma neighborhood which is the heart of antique stores and second hand furniture stores. The architecture of this neighborhood is quiet impressive as well. You will be amazed at the historical European buildings that line up winding streets.
If you are in the mood for a small museum stop, Museum of Innocence is located here and can be visited everyday except Monday. The museum is the first and only museum in the world that is based on a novel. The museum is based on the novel by the same name by Orhan Pamuk, Turkey’s only Nobel prize winner writer.
Once you are done with exploring the streets of Çukurcuma, you will head to Galata neighborhood.
Former Genoese neighborhood definitely has the feel in the architecture.
Galata Tower is the center of the neighborhood and you will encounter many tourists here taking pictures. However as you explore the side streets, you will feel a nice and cool vibe here as well. There are many small stores and cool cafes here as well as cute souvenir shops.
