Ulus Istanbul

Ulus Istanbul
Ulus sits in the hills above Arnavutkoy and Kurucesme , and used to have a large Jewish population and still has more Jews living here than in other parts of Istanbul . Ulus means “the nation” or “the people” and is in reference to the Turkish Republic.

Ulus Park

In the large open space of Ulus Park there are several venerated restaurants that give you stunning views over the Bosphorus.

Historic Cemeteries

There are two Jewish cemeteries that serve the Sephardic and Ashkenazi communities that can be found off the hectic Ahmet Adnan Saygun Road which links Ulus with Etiler and Zincirlikuyu ; the victims of the Neve Shalom massacre in 1986 are buried in the Ashkenazi Cemetery.

Oditorium High School

Next to the cemetery is the Oditorium, a large Jewish High School which today educates 500 pupils and nearby there is a statue of Ahmet Adnan Saygun (1907-1991), a famous Turkish composer who blended Turkish folk music with Western style classical music. He was also famous for writing Turkey’s first two operas “Ozsoy (Lineage)” and “Tasbebek(Porcelain Doll)” in 1934 at the request of Ataturk .

Getting to Ulus

To get to Ulus; you can walk from 1. Levent Metro or take the Bus No. 43R from Kabatas .
