The large residential suburb of Bahcelievler in Istanbul sits on the European side of the city and is easily accessed using the E5 highway that runs from Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport to the Asian side of the city. Bahcelievler covers 5% of Istanbul's land area, it has a population of over 570,000 andis neighboured to the north by Bakirkoy which has a very similar area. Bahcelievler neighbourhoods include Basin Sitesi and Yayla and have well lit, tree-lined avenues with attractive buildings, small parks, large shopping centres, cinemas and many small cafés. The traffic in Bahcelievler can get very congested despite efforts made in 2006 when new roads, bridges and underpasses were constructed to relieve the pressure.
Commercial Area of BahcelievlerBahcelievler’s outlying areas, such as Yenibosna and Soganli, mainly consist of factories and small retail businesses that amalgamate with extremely dense housing of 6–8-storey apartment blocks packed together in long rows that run through main roads and have poor infrastructure with narrow streets that become packed with traffic.
Bahcelievler FacilitiesBahcelievler has hospitals, many public and private schools, 4 branches of universities and well known landmarks that include the Unverdi Shopping Center and the Omur Patisserie / Café.
Getting to BahcelievlerBahcelievler can be easily accessed by car, bus, dolmus minibus and municipal trains which only take 10 minutes to reach Ataturk International Airport, and fast crossings to the Asian side are available by sea-bus in neighbouring Bakirkoy that connects to Kadikoy and Bostanci .
