New Mosque - Eminönü, Istanbul

Although this mosque is called New Mosque (Yeni Cami), it opened its doors in 1665. It is new for the history of old Istanbul but relatively not that new. There are more famous mosques in Istanbul but this one will welcome you first after a boat trip from Kadiköy to Eminönü.

Here is the famous Galata Bridge. Foto is taken from the boat. It is one of the most crowded part of the city especially on the weekends. I recommend you to go to Eminönü in the weekdays.

One of the best spot to watch sunset from the coast of Kadiköy. You can just sit down by the sea and watch the sun going down. Just amazing!

There are many lazy street dogs in Istanbul. They are harmless, they just sleep. They got fat thanks to folks of Istanbul who care about street animals, just as cats as well. We love them. They bring color to our daily life.

  1. I highly recommend to visit Kuzguncuk village, located on the Asian side. It was Jewish village during Ottoman Empire. There is one part where you’ll fine colorful Ottoman mansions. That was lovely to walk around in the neighborhood. And there’s other Jewish Settlement in European Side. It’s called Fener – Balat. Located along the Golden Horn. Back to the old days, Jews, Armenians, Christians, Muslims, living in this area. The neighborhood is also full with unique and cozy coffee house where you can sit and relax. I wrote about these two neighborhood on my blog, ‘Stories of Wanderer’. If you’re still in Istanbul, visiting these two neighborhoods will give another different look of Istanbul. And you’ll be more sure that Istanbul is so special.
