"Located at the core of the historical peninsula."

Rumeli Kavağı Bosphorus

The last ferry stop on the European shore of the Bosphorus is Rumeli Kavagi. A delightful little fisherman village with the ruins of a medieval castle and several fish restaurants, some of which have a spectacular view over the wild and rocky scenery of the last stretch of Bosphorus to the Black Sea, and looking across to the most substantial castle on the Asian shore above Anadolu Kavagi. 

In its heyday a wall connected each castle to the quay, from which a mole projected into the channel on each side. Here the Byzantines collected tolls and customs dues from passing ships. In time of danger they could cut off all shipping with a chain linking the moles a formidable continuous line of defense from hilltop to hilltop. 

Telli Baba Shrine is set on the very edge of the water. is the turbe of Telli Baba, a holly man whose turbe is one of the most popular shrines in the area, for Telli Baba is thought to be especially helpful to women who wish for a husband. The supplement leaves a strand of tinsel on the holy mans tomb, taking a second strand away with her. When the wish is granted she returns to give thanks and to leave the second strand of tinsel on the tomb.
