Moda Istanbul

Moda Istanbul
Moda looks out across the Sea of Marmara to the Princes’ Islands and is a very upmarket residential neighbourhood that has chic restaurants and bars.  

History

A settlement is believed to have been here since Phoenician times although its popularity grew when the Ottoman Empire was dying and Greeks and Armenians moved in making it a fashionable place to live; Moda actually means fashionable in Turkish.  

Churches in Moda

There are several churches buried in the back streets, reminders of the once Christian populations that were here, and the most striking is the French built 19th century Catholic Church of Assumption.  The much smaller 1878 Anglican Church of All Saints, a design of G.E. Street, who was also responsible for the Crimean Church, continues to hold services every Sunday morning.  

Moda Ferry Terminal

Many 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.
