Beykoz Istanbul

Beykoz Istanbul
In Turkish Beykoz means “the Sultan’s Walnut” and this strange name appears to have been given by Osman Gazi, the first Ottoman leader, to commemorate one of his commanders, Akcakoca Bey, although more plausibly, it derives from the Persian word for village which is “koz”.

Prior to that it was named Amycus, after King Amycus, who ruled the Bebryces people, and who would challenge everyone to a boxing match until he was beaten by the hero Polydeuces who was travelling with Jason and the Argonauts in search of the Golden Fleece.

Places to Visit in Beykoz
