Taksim Square, Istanbul

Taksim Square, Istanbul

When in Istanbul, you're mostly surrounded by history and culture. But not if you go to Taksim Square.

Known as a modern city center, this is where you'll find hotels, restaurants, movie theaters, bars, night clubs, and other amenities typical of a modern world. It's always busy for almost 24 hours a day with a crowd of young people.

Like the Time Square in New York, it is also a place where people meet to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Public concerts, parades, and other shows are also held in the area.

When in Taksim Square, look for the Independence Monument, the most important monument in the area. It was made by Pietro Canonica, an Italian sculptor, and is a central spot for many of Istanbul’s official ceremonies.

Most city tours pass by this lively and busy square, but you can make it an interesting trip when you combine it with a culinary walking tour to the Golden Horn. Along the way, you get to sample Turkish coffee, make your own version, and get a taste of the array of Istanbul flavors in its many delicatessens and markets.
