Silivri Istanbul

Silivri Istanbul
Silivri is located on the coastline of Istanbul’s province, 67km from the city centre and its 45km long coastline is where many residents of Istanbul have weekend and holiday homes.  

Silivri borders Buyukcekmece to the east, Catalca to the north, Corlu and Marmara Eregli to the west, Cerkezkoy in the north-west, with the Sea of Marmara to its south and has an area of 760 km2 and is the second largest district in the province of Istanbul after Catalca .  

In summer Silivri’s population increases 4 to 5 times, and is easily accessed using the D100 highway or the O-3 E80 motorway that connects Turkey with Europe and only takes 1½ hours to reach from the city centre; this is why it became a popular weekend and holiday retreat, although these roads get very crowded, and as the Marmara coastline is so accessible it has always been a popular holiday destination for the residents of Istanbul.  

As the city has grown, holiday facilities have had to move further away, such as to Tekirdag , and the areas of Florya and Yesilkoy were once popular holiday resorts.  Silivri was at its apex in the 1960s and 70s when coach loads of people would arrive to stay in the many complexes and holiday apartments built on the beach. There is a third major airport being planned for the Istanbul area and to be constructed in the district of Silivri to help relieve the congestion at Ataturk and Sabiha Gokcen Airports.
