Avcilar Istanbul

Avcilar Istanbul

Location

Avcilar is another suburb of Istanbul on its European side that is just west of the Kucukcekmece inlet on the Sea of Marmara. 

Development of Avcilar

Avcilar was once a small coastal village with tracts of open land, and from the 1980s onwards a vast amount of residential property has been developed along with a great amount of industrialisation in the port area,
and along the road that leads to the village of Firuzkoy overlooking the inlet.  Avcilar was once a popular holiday and weekend retreat away from the city, which has now extended the busy port of Amarli, and consequently the road leading into Istanbul’s European side has even more traffic, is full of billboards and usually packed with freight lorries, and using this road to reach the city centre means having to drive through a network of bridges and narrow underpasses.

Residential Apartments and Living in Avcilar

The luxury apartment complexes close to the sea and in the centre of Avcilar offer a better life style, and are of course much more expensive, they have outside seating areas, many restaurants, 2 cinemas, a busy shopping area along with pedestrian shopping streets with all kinds of fast food venues, narrow side streets with little shops and cafés, and also has a busy night life scene. The streets here are full of young people, the roads are jam packed with traffic and this whole area is typical of what people expect of Istanbul. 

Istanbul University

A campus belonging to the Istanbul University is in Avcilar and has faculties of engineering, sports, business management and veterinary medicine and has a park within it located just by the Kucukcekmece inlet.

Avcilar Metrobus

Although Avcilar is quite a distance from the Asian side of Istanbul the introduction of the metrobus system here has made transportation considerably easier.
