Karakoy Istanbul

Karakoy Istanbul
The district north of Galata Bridge is known as Karakoy and named after the Karaite Jews who lived there in the 19th century.  This busy commercial area today has a vibrant fish market, cruise ships from all over the world dock here and ferries come and go from Kadikoy and Haydarpasa .  
 Between the waterfront and Necatibey Road there is a warren of narrow streets and old forgotten churches and the Bankalar (Voyvoda) Road has magnificent 19th century buildings almost all of which now house banks.  

Persembe and Azapkapi , which has an excellent mosque designed by Mimar Sinan that is next to a beautiful fountain, are two areas which are situated very close to Karakoy.
