FENER-BALAT: THE GOLDEN HORN
Fener & Balat are two historical neighborhoods that have not been on the local or tourist radar for decades.
The historical neighborhoods have housed the Greek and Jewish community of Constantinople for centuries.
Fener still houses the Greek Orthodox Patriarchy along with historical houses with 2-3 stories, art galleries and workshops that are slowly popping up and small cafe’s that are following the lead of the artists.
You will explore Fener & Balat neighborhoods with charming narrow streets, historical houses and neighborhood feel.
You are likely to come across many film crews shooting for movies or soap operas among the streets.
