Map & Istanbul

"Located at the core of the historical peninsula."

Taksim Square Popular Places

Setting off from Taksim Square, a central water distribution point of old for all Istanbul, from which it takes its name, water having being taken all the way from Belgrade forest on the Black Sea, is today a noisy and highly congested nexus for traffic and people alike. The Independence Monument stands centrally, revering Ataturk and fellow leaders of the Turkish Independence. Notice the prominent dome of the Aya Triada Kilisesi, Greek Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity overlooking Taksim square. Access is via the first street off left from Istiklal Caddesi called Meselik Sokak. Enter Istiklal Caddesi and on your right you will pass by the French Embassy, located there since the nineteenth century. It is clearly one of the streets greater landmarks evident by the fact that there is forever a waiting person waiting for someone else to arrive at this 24 hour meeting spot. The renowned Nature & Peace Restaurant, predominantly catering for vegetarians serves wonderfully prepared juicy vegetable and pasta dishes, is located on the left turn-off after Mc Donalds. Continue on the main street and look out for Atlas Pasaji on the left. Entering the passage, one passes through a popular stylish bar on the right, named Sefahathane, where you can enjoy a coffee, cappuccino, or beer at any time of day with Western music and with good service. The bar pre-cedes the Atlas Bazaar, through the entrance at the end, mainly comprising of antiques, carpet shops, ceramic artwork, handicrafts, furniture, calligraphy and jewelry outlets - a miniature grand bazaar in itself and a must-look-at for intrepid shoppers.
