"Ortaköy" Ortakoy Tip by MalenaN

Ortakoy, Istanbul: 13 reviews and 32 photos


Ortaköy is the suburb just below the Bosphorus Bridge, on the European side.
When I visited late a Sunday afternoon there was really many people there. All cafes were ful of people, there were people sitting by the waterfront and walking around the streets were there was a market.

I wanted to take the bus from Ortaköy to Eminönu but the traffic almost stood still. As many others I walked (the traffic was not much faster) and not until I had reached Besiktas it came a bus to Eminönu.

Going with the Bosphorus ferry you will probably see Buyuk Mecidiye Camii. It is a mosque built by the same architect as Dolmabahce palace.
