Architecture of Istanbul, Turkey | Part II

Posted on 25th June 2013 in architecture

If you missed it, my first series of images from Istanbul can be found in Part I. After my first day in Istanbul, I mostly wandered around Taksim, up and down the streets, side streets and around again. However, I did head over Galata Kpr. into the Grand Bazaar and around the Blue and Red Mosques: Hagia Sophia, and Sultan Ahmet. This area I guess could be called the old city, for it’s where the fortress once was in times of old.

It is quite remarkable for me to think that today, one year later, these streets are where the protests that are making news across the world are happening.
