The Golden Horn

The Golden Horn has a long, horn-like shape separates the European part of Istanbul. Since it is one of the most natural ports of the world, those who are interested in Byzantine and Ottoman navies and commercial maritime have gathered around here for centuries.

This spot, which is called "Golden Horn" since the water gets the color of gold by sunset, is surrounded by nice parks and tracks for strolling.

Towards the center of the Golden Horn, in Fener and Balat districts, you pass by streets with wooden houses from Byzantine and Ottoman period, churches and synagogues.

The skirts of the hill are covered with cemeteries which are partly shadowed by dark cypress trees. Pierre Loti Tea Garden which is located on the hill overlooking this side is a magnificent place to enjoy the view.
