Churches in Moda
Moda Ferry TerminalMany of the ferry landing stages in the city have architecture that belie their ordinary functions and the one at Moda was built by the architect Vedat Tek in 1917 as the first stop for ferries going to Princes’ Islands and is most definitely one of the best. It was destroyed by high winds in 1937 and restored in 2000 with the help of a famous pop star Baris Manco (1943-1999) and today has a very popular small restaurant inside.
