"Grand Bazaar" Grand Bazaar - Kapali Çarsi Tip by apbeaches

Grand Bazaar - Kapali Çarsi, Istanbul: 112 reviews and 191 photos


Istanbul's Grand Bazaar or Covered Market is Turkey's largest covered market offering excellent shopping: beautiful Turkish carpets, glazed tiles and pottery, copper and brassware, apparel made of leather, cotton and wool, meerschaum pipes, alabaster bookends and ashtrays, and all sorts of other things. It looked like a city inside with streets filled with stalls of thousands of shops. We enjoyed shopping & negotiating prices with merchants.
