Cihangir-Taksim is the heart of Istanbul and It's the architecturally beautiful "in" place for artists and expats. A combined soul of modern and oriental Istanbul. Attractions, best restaurants, nightlife, shopping hubs and mass transit hubs are all in 5-10 min walking distance.
Yet, the flat is in a very quiet and safe street for a complete relaxation.
- 5-10 minute walking distance to major shopping, cultural & entertainment centers as Taksim Square, Galata Tower, Istiklal Street, Karakoy and Istanbul Modern
- Short walking distance to Metro, Tram Stations and Ferry port. A taxi stand is just around the street corner.
- 5-10 minutes by tram to arrive historic places such as Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapı Palace, Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar etc
- Famous café's and restaurants are just at the next street.
Early sunshine makes a mystique lighting on the historic peninsula accompanied with seagull voices. Cargo vessels are crossing the Bosphorus where fishing boats are getting ready to finish their nightlong work. During your breakfast at the balcony, the sea traffic increases with ferries and boats moving to various directions. Then a mega cruise boat at the visible horizon appears, approaching to anchor to the port in front of my balcony. Unspeakable watching experience to see that massive cruise anchoring…then you hear the port's music band welcoming tourists getting out of that massive cruise.
The sea traffic increases where you feel all the liveliness and energy of Istanbul. Sunshine makes various blue/green color shadows on the sea coupled with the beauty of princess islands. Big cargo vessels are approaching from the horizon.
Relaxing at my balcony with your favorite wine and music, which you streamed to my hi-fi music system. During sunset, all the monuments and Asia shore dress a reddish cloth, the ferries and boats seem brighter on a darkened blue of the Bosphorus, sea traffic calms down and you watch a very relaxing sea view along with 4000 year old historic peninsula's reddish cloth.
An amazing and romantic view where historical peninsula monuments are lightened and boats at the Bosphorus seem like candles on the water. Huge cargo vessels pass the Bosphorus with only few lights like ghost ships. If lucky to witness the full moon…then just imagine…It's unspeakable.
