Getting to know Beyoglu District

General

Beyoglu is a district on the European side of Istanbul. It is surrounded by Sisli and Kagithane to the northwest, Besiktas and Istanbul Strait to the east, and the Golden Horn to the south and west. However, among the public, the name Beyoglu is used for Istiklal Street and its surroundings, which is one of the important cultural, entertainment, and business centers of the city and connects Galatasaray to Taksim Square.

It is claimed that the name “Beyoglu” used by the Turks originated from the mansion of a brain son in the region. Most of the consulates (former embassies until 1923 when Ankara became the new Turkish capital) are still in this district. Italian, British, German, Greek, Russian, Dutch, and Swedish consulates are important for their history and architecture.

The world-famous Taksim Square and Istiklal Street are located in this district. The literacy rate in the population over the age of 15 in Beyoglu is almost 85 percent.

Beyoglu can be defined as the most Istanbul-smelling district of Istanbul, where the term cosmopolitan comes to life. Istiklal Street and its surrounding streets can be considered the center of not only Beyoglu but also Istanbul. Apart from Istiklal Street, Cumhuriyet, İnönü, and Cihangir Streets are also the places where the commercial and entertainment function is most prominent.

Transportation

Since Beyoglu is the central district, it is easily accessible. Transportation to the airport is uninterrupted. There is a subway connection between Taksim and Mecidiyekoy of Sisli and 4. Levent. Ferries are operating in the Golden Horn. In Beyoglu sea transportation, ships traveling abroad from Kasımpasa, Haskoy, Sutluce, Kadikoy, Kartal, Bostanci, Adalar, Marmara, Black Sea, Aegean, and Mediterranean ports depart from Karakoy Dock. In addition, the tram can be used for transportation in Beyoglu.

Famous streets such as Istiklal Street, Bankalar Street, Bogazkesen Street, Siraselviler Street, and Yenicarsi Street are located in Beyoglu.

Geography

The area of the district is almost 9 km² (3.5 square miles). Beyoglu shares a border of approximately 8 km with the Golden Horn.

There is no cultivated, planted area, forest, and natural resources in this district. The Marmara Region Climate is dominant in the district. Its climate is generally considered to be warm.

History

Beyoglu first developed as a center of diplomacy, but later on, it turned into a trade center of Istanbul as a result of the increase in foreign trade and economic control and concentration here. The location of entertainment and cultural organizations, as well as trade, made it the focal point of the whole of Istanbul.

Today, there are many important institutions and places within the borders of Beyoglu. Among them; Mimar Sinan University in Findikli, Ataturk Cultural Center in Taksim Square, Northern Sea Area Command in Kasimpasa, Tophane-i Amire (Koc Industry Museum) in Sutluce, Aynalikavak Pavilion, Istanbul Chamber of Industry on Istiklal Street, Yapi Kredi Culture and Publishing, Flower Passage, Fish Bazaar, Aksanat, many cinemas, Muammer Karaca Theater, Tunnel and Tram transportation, Galata Tower in Galata.
