Haydarpasa Istanbul

Haydarpasa Istanbul
This area is known as the gateway to Anatolia and has the waterside Haydarpasa Train Station with trains that will also take you to Syria and Iran.  

Haydarpasa Train Station

The station is a wonderful sight as you approach it by ferry, especially for bird lovers who will see the hundreds of cormorants and grey herons that sit and preen on the sea wall that sticks out from the shore. It is a  huge and impressive building of a German design but after completion of the Marmaray Project, which will possibly make it redundant, its fate is yet to be decided.  

History

The land on which it is built was named after one of two Grand Viziers;
 Hadim Haydar Pasa who served Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent (1520-1566) or Haydar Pasa who served Sultan Selim III (1789-1807), and originally used for agriculture until the end of the 19th century when it was became the assembly point for armies heading east.  The original station was constructed in 1833 with the port beside it built in 1899 and after this time the area became somewhat industrialised.

Getting to Haydarpasa

Regular ferries run from Karakoy to Haydarpasa although it is easier to get to Selimiye Barracks by taking the ferry to Harem and then walk along the coast road towards Kadikoy .
