The true center of the city: Taksim and Istiklal Avenue

Taksim, one of Istanbul's most popular tourist spots, offers activities for everyone. The ancient landmarks in Istanbul's Taksim area have undergone modern improvements that make them appear more attractive. Additionally, like a never-ending river, the commercial markets in Taksim Square and Istiklal Street draw more shoppers, tourists, and visitors there.

From Taksim Square, Istiklal Avenue runs all the way to the Galata Tower. A diversity of late Ottoman building styles surround it. There are a few buildings from the early Turkish Republic period among more contemporary instances of modern architecture. While many would have previously been apartment buildings, the majority now house shops, music stores, art galleries, cinemas, theaters, libraries, cafés, pubs, nightclubs with live music, hotels, historically significant patisseries, chocolates, restaurants, and an ever-increasing number of global chain retailers.

Hungry yet? The restaurants along the Flower Passage are the greatest choice if you want to try raki and enjoy a special meal, particularly evening. Simply choose one and savor the delicious cuisine, traditional Turkish music, and lively ambiance.

After discovering the Flower Passage, the next stop is the Saint Antoine Church in Istanbul which is open to the public every day from 9 am to 7 pm. Admission to Saint Antoine Church is free, however, donations are welcome. When you are here, light a candle and make a donation. You'll notice that the church, which is right in the middle of the city, has a calming influence.
