The Golden Horn or Halic Istanbul
Where the Golden Horn name drives fromThere are numerous reasons as to why the Golden Horn was so named; one is possibly from the horn shape that is formed by the streams of the Alibey and Kagithane rivers; another could be from the setting sun
Its Turkish name, Halic, is not a translation of “Golden Horn” but an abbreviation of Haliç-i Dersaadet which means “Bay of Istanbul” that was taken from the Osmanlı language of the Ottomans.
Things to do in Golden HornOne of the best and most enjoyable things to do here is to cruise up and down the waters and there is an hourly ferry that leaves from the front of the Zindan Han building at Eminonu and stops at Kasimpasa , Fener , Balat , Haskoy , Ayvansaray and Sutluce . While crossing the water you are able to see the Naval Command Office (Bahriye Nezareti) and Istanbul Naval Hospital at Kasimpasa and at Fener, the Greek High School for Boys.
