Cruising along the Bosphorus from Kandilli to Anadolu Kavagi

Cruising along the Bosphorus from Kandilli to Anadolu Kavagi
On the Asian side look out for the long white building of the Kibrisli Mustafa Emin Pasa Yali, the Kucuksu Palace and the late 17th century Koprulu Amcazade Huseyin Pasa Yali which is the oldest wooden house on the Bosphorus .

Just before the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge and on the European shore you cannot miss the Rumeli Fortress of Hisari as it comes into view, and directly opposite are the remains of its older and smaller brother, the Anadolu Hisari ( Anatolian Fortress ).

Cruising past Kanlica on the Asian side and high up on a hill is the Hidiv Kasri , and in 1900 this beautiful Art Nouveau building was the summerhouse of the last Ottoman Governor (khedive) of Egypt.  

Back on the European side the ferry then edges around Emirgan and the lovely Istinye harbour and then on to the upmarket suburb of Yenikoy where you will see many other Yalis or mansions including the 19th century Sait Halim Pasa Yali.

The cruise will then pass Tarabya and Sariyer before stopping at Rumeli Kavagi where there are many fish restaurants or you can continue to the Asian side to Anadolu Kavagi which is where the cruise will end.
