İstanbul'un en eski semtlerinden biri olan Beyoğlu'nda Tünel ile Taksim Meydanı arasında uzanan ve 19. yüzyılın sonlarından beri Türkiye'nin en ünlü caddelerinden biri olma vasfını koruyan cadde.
St. Antoine Church, also known as St Anthony of Padua, may be the most famous Roman Catholic establishment in Istanbul, especially due to its prominent location near the center of Istiklal Avenue.
One of the most famous avenue in Istanbul. Very near Taksim Square. Go here to see local Istanbul life in all it's glory. Explore the surrounding and you'll discover little gems all over...
Istiklal Street is one of the most well-known avenues in Istanbul. Stretching for about three kilometers, it is the main pedestrian thoroughfare in the city and welcomes
Inaugurated on January 17, 1875 the Tünel is the second-oldest subterranean urban rail line in the world, after the London Underground (1863), and the first subterranean urban rail line in cont Europe
The name of the place was derived from the armory known as Tophane-i Amire (English: Imperial armory), which was built in the reign (1451–1481) of Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II.
The most famous street in Turkey. Not only walk Istiklal caddesi but also paraller & vertically narrows where you can find interesting places for coffee and food.
Trams started to operate in İstanbul at 1871 and the one on İstiklal Avenue became active at 1883. Until 1914 all the trams were pulled by horses. Later they were all electrified...
It's a very nice pedestrian street with lots of shops, restaurants and cafes. However, I found it a bit disturbing that you get harassed by some shop owners who keep following you as you walk

Buzzing, vibrant street with tons of food vendors, cafes and sweet shops. Similar crowds to Oxford Street in London (so if you don't like people, avoid!) Be careful of fast motorbikes and cars.
The busiest street in Istanbul (European side). Good for shopping and walking all the way from the Taksim square to the Galata tower. On your way back take the historical tram.
The most crowded street in Istanbul, full of shops, bars, cafes&restaurants,clubs etc.Must see in Istanbul. Love it, even if sometimes some weird/bad things can happen here :)
Take a tram, visit churches, the flower passage, eat where the locals eat, shop in brand name stores, explore antique hives and visit museums. This is where it all happens in Istanbul
Very nice street. A lot of shops and places for food. Also it s cmose to Galata tower. Whenever you re bored, walk in this street, it will help you to cheer you up
All stores on sale (winter)! Best place to buy! Everything cheaper than the Sultanahmet! Good clubs, coffeehouse and restaurants!
Too many people and thief taxi drivers. Do not take taxi in here especially the one in the image. He will completely rob you! He robbed more than 200$ from me and drove away!
Very very busy walking street. You get suffocated by cigarettes smoke. Often get Syrians asking you to enter their shops to buy garments
This place is almost always swarming :p. Very lively area, however, if you're going to do any shopping better go elsewhere for lower and 'less-touristy' prices especially for souvenirs
I reckon this is the most crowded street in Istanbul. Crowded but still charming. Just be careful with the thugs that follow you thinking every foreigner is a tourist.
My city has the colours of eternity, a precious gem encrusted in blue, red and white. My city has the perfume of wisdom, captive in all little corner... My city is life and death, hope and fear...
If you wanna feel a bit like you're a local for a few days, stay in an apart hotel on one of these sub streets. Great ppl watching on Fri and Sat - when the trendy n good looking ones come out.
Really fun area to eat and party,love the mix of cultures especially places where they play Kurdish traditional music,really similar to Arabic
if you want to experience walking on almost empty Istiklal street - come here on Sunday evening. surprisingly empty and calm. but not all places (like bufe or koska) work these hours.
Very good place with warm culture of turkish people. Take taxi from sheraton hotel for only 29 lira. Nice place to buy souvenir and ladies thing
Lots of people all the time going both ways (up & down the street): both amazing and tiresome. But it does give you a flavour of the city.
The best and most famous street in Istanbul and Turkey. You must walk here every day and night.
This is the main street that brings you from Taksim square to Galata tower. Day or night FULL of people, go check bars in side streets.
Best street in Istanbul, you can find here vitality, nightlife is great in this part of city, bars and discos are good enough to have an unforgattable night
When you finish walking up and down the road, try the narrow and parallel streets. You may find interesting cafes and restaurants.
Touristy, bland, crowded part of town lined with international shops and chain cafes. Branch off to Galata for a quieter, more pleasant jaunt.
Lots of cafes, restaurants and shopping. Worth a visit to join on the Historical tram.
Seems to be very crowded and commercial the whole day through but nice atmosphere with a lot of people and things to look at.
There are various styles in Pizzas making. We like it in Roman style: Thin and crispy :) If you too then come on; we're at Cihangir!
Amazing venue for people watching, cafés, and history. Don't come if you're in a time crunch, however. The crowds can move quite slowly.
Never think that you been in Istanbul if didn't visit here, eat any meal, Turkish delights and coffee. Of course you should have a selfy too
The busiest street in Istanbul. Nice to go there to walk and shopping. A lot of restaurants and coffee shops.
It was a great experience, very crowded, its reminds me of timesquare. Many great restaurants and side street bars.
very nice street! too crowded, noisy , full of turists . but for girls not safe at night i have gone through it unfortunetly!
Walk at least once on this street during the night: crowded for sure, but the lights create a beautiful atmosphere.
Walk into any dark and suspicious alley off the Istiklal and have the best kebap in your life (or the worst one if you are not lucky).
Famous and crowded street in Istanbul. There you can find also Skahe Shack which comparing to others is very bad
Just like any other commercial street anywhere else in the world. Unremarkable and unnecessary unless you're really keen on shopping in a busy street.
You can find lots of stores here. Nothing too high end though. Beware of swindlers.
Bustling thoroughfare lined with trendy cafes. Wonderful mix of modern and traditional architecture.
Always filled with a sea of people from both directions ! Ride the red tram . Take a photo with it !
You can shop till 10 pm as grand bazar close by 5 pm. They do have very nice things to buy their
Very crowdy street, like Old Arbat in Moscow. Many musicians, cafés and clothing stores. Be careful of tram.
One of the most popular places in Istanbul. Plenty of shops and cafes. Is very popular among tourists
The one and only...something for everyone. My Saudi friends; make use of the exchange rate advantage these days
Many many shops very good prices ask for discount eat icecream drink espresso lab and walk walk walk
