Besiktas Istanbul

Besiktas Istanbul
This part of the city, although often missed by tourists, is very busy as it has the main interchanges for buses and ferries and also a new Metro line is under construction.

The name Besiktas means “cradle stone” and it is claimed that a piece of Jesus’ cradle was brought here from Bethlehem by early Christians and placed in a local church, and later taken to Hagia Sophia from where it was believed to be stolen by the Fourth Crusaders in the 1204.

Besiktas is also a very busy shopping area for the more ordinary people with normal spending budgets, and for those with more spending power the more upmarket neighbourhood of Nisantasi is nearby.
