In Yesilkoy (Green Village) you will find lovely pastel coloured wooden houses along residential streets full of trees and is similar to Bebek and Kuzguncuk which are really nice places to live although they are very close to the airport. The present day Yeşilköy, in particular the centre is reminiscent of a British market town with its many beautiful 19th century wooden houses that have been renovated and are now shops, restaurants and bars and is a wonderful place to spend an evening.

Places to Visit in Yesilkoy

We recommend you visit “The Biggest Thematic Aquarium of the World” (Tel. 0212 444 9744) on Senlikkoy Mahallesi (District), No. 93 Florya.

The huge Catholic Church of St. Stephen is on Cümbüş Street and has a painting above the altar showing St. Stephen being stoned to death in the year 34 or 35. Around the corner from here is a lovely little harbour offering great views of the Princes’ Islands.
The Armenian Church of Surp Istepanos (St. Stephen) can be found on Inci Çiçeği Street and on Mirasyedi Street is the Greek Orthodox Church of Hagios Stephanos (St. Stephen).
