The present bridge dates to 1994 and it is the fourth such to cross the Golden Horn here. The fishermen, the fish restaurants, the frenetic traffic, the views ? this is Istanbul?s quintessential reference point. Originally connecting the ?foreign? neighborhoods of Galata/Pera to the old city, the best way to experience the bridge is to walk across it. Do it during the day and do it at night. The bridge never ceases to amaze.

Directions: spans the Golden Horn, links Eminonou and Kayakoy-Galata districts.
