Üsküdar is a large and densely populated district of Istanbul, on the Anatolian shore of the Bosphorus right opposite the heart of the great city.

It is directly opposite the old city of Eminönü and transport across the Bosphorus is easy by boat or bridge. Its promenade is lined with cafes and restaurants, the most famous and prominent of which is not on the coast but out in the water: Kiz Kulesi (Maiden's Tower), is a small tower just off the coast that has existed since Byzantine times and from time to time has been used as a toll booth.

You can watch my 5 min 44 sec HQ Video Istanbul Bosporus Uskudar part I out of my Youtube channel with music Turk.

You may watch my high resolution photo of Istanbul on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 41° 2' 22.96" N 29° 2' 6.54" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Bosphorus Uskudar.
