  In the Grand Bazaar
by MalenaN

Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi) is a covered market with several thousand shops selling carpets, jewellery, bags, souvenirs, cloths etc. There are a lot of tourists here and some of the stallholders can be very eager to sell you things. Don’t forget to bargain!

The bazaar started to be built soon after the conquest but it has several times since then been destroyed by fires, rebuilt and repaired.

It is closed on Sundays.
