Pendik Istanbul

Pendik Istanbul
Pendik sits is on the Asian side of Istanbul between Kartal and Tuzla and on the coastline of the Sea of Marmara and has a population of around 625,000.  Up until the 1970s Pendik was a rural area a long distance from the city centre, and today this highly populated area has a mixture of working class housing, most of which is near the E5 motorway, with more expensive luxury apartments giving sea views located on the coastline.  

Pendik has a busy shopping district, restaurants and cinemas and hosts a large street market every Saturday.  

Pendik’s public transport system consists of slow buses or dolmus minibuses and slow suburban trains that run into Kadikoy ; it does have a fast coastal road but unfortunately at present no public transport runs along here.  Pendik’s area of Sapanbaglari was settled by refugees escaping the Bosnian war in the 1990s who named the streets here after their villages and who have managed to blend in well with the people of Istanbul.  

At the end of the 1990s the private educational institutions of Koc Ozel Lisesi and Sabanci University were established here; Pendik is home to the Formula One racetrack, has a high-speed boat service that crosses the Marmara Sea to Yalova giving easy access to Bursa and   Aegean regions, and close by is the Sabiha Gokcen International Airport.
