Istanbul, no matter how European it may be, has managed to transfer its oriental charm and unique flavor of the trading city through the centuries. To experience the dynamism and incredible energy of Istanbul, we will go with you to the bazaar. But first, we will taste delicious Turkish coffee in an authentic place not far from the Grand Bazaar. This is my favorite coffee shop because it brews the "right" coffee on the hot sand. And the aroma of hookah smoke, embedded in the ancient walls, adds atmosphere to this marvelous establishment. Individual excursion for 1-5 people Duration 3 hours Children Allowed with children How it goes On foot Rating 4.86 on 7 reviews € 69 per excursion Price for 1-5 people, regardless of the number of participants

Istanbul Markets

In Istanbul, there are two bazaars on a special pedestal: the Grand Bazaar (Kapaly Charshi) and the Egyptian Market (Spice Market). Although they exist as two separate markets, the close location and no less colorful streets connecting the two historical markets give the impression of a single, very large commercial city. Yes, precisely the city, since only not the territory of one Grand Bazaar with an area of ​​110,000 sq. M. there are about 4,000 shops on 66 streets. It has 5 mosques, 1 school, 7 fountains, 10 wells, 18 gates and 17 khans (inns).

Program

  • We will wander through the labyrinths of Kapala Charsha, plunge into a riot of colors and goods for every taste.
  • Having got out from under the vaults of the Grand Bazaar and drawn by the flow of people, we will head towards the Egyptian market. And the closer we get to it, the more spicy aromas will excite your sense of smell. But the invigorating aroma of freshly ground coffee, which comes from the Mehmet Efendi coffee house, dominates among these fragrant odors. The line for this wonderful powder lined up here from the very morning and does not end until late at night. At the Egyptian market, you will have the opportunity to taste different varieties of Turkish delight and baklava, olives and cheeses, bargain with gambling vendors speaking all languages ​​of the world, and learn the history of this ancient shopping center.
  • After the aromatherapy at the Spice Market, your appetite will kick in. I suggest refreshing yourself on the shores of the Bosphorus. Today the menu includes fried fish in a delicious bun with onions and herbs to the accompaniment of "turshu" - Turkish pickles. All this yummy is sold directly from the wooden galleys moored at the Eminonu pier.

This is our walk in general terms. As a bonus, I promise many interesting shops and shopping passages along the way, where you can find souvenirs and gifts for every taste.
