Neighbourhood: Uskudar
Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s most densely populated neighbourhoods. Once a Greek colony, later a haven for people from across the Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons. Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by its myriad treasures than by its many thousand residents. And with fairytale settings such as the “Maiden’s Tower” as well as grand examples of Ottoman Era architecture, plenty of parks, a gorgeous and lengthy coastline, and some of Turkey’s holiest sites, there’s no end to the sightseeing possibilities. Easily reached from the city’s European shores via a steady network of ferries, time spent in Uskudar reveals a “real life” Istanbul that many who experience find extremely fascinating.

The city of Kuzgıncuk is located on the other side. Although it promised us a lot of future, we crossed to the other shore with a ferry ride. A classic European style street. There are cafes and restaurants. If you don't like crowds, don't go on weekends. It was really crowded, not only a tourist attraction but also a local one.

This little village that cluster around a lush valley has been the center of multicultural Istanbul with its mosque, churches and synagog. Its artsy community and cafe scene attracts weekenders. Definitely one of may favourites!

Kuzguncuk waterfront offers magnificent views of the Bosphorus. It belongs to a part of Istanbul on the Asian shore where time seems to pass by more slowly than in other quarters of the megacity. It is idyllic. I would not say that Kuzguncuk is a village. Perhaps small town would be better. Many houses are rather old. Trees and flower pots make the neighbourhood green and friendly. Cats roam around. My first impression was that of a bohemian district. I hope I was not mistaken. On the waterfront there are cafes where the guests can escape the hectical life of the big city. Kuzguncuk is really very nice.

is a neighborhood in the Üsküdar district on the Asian side of the Bosphorus in Istanbul, Turkey. The neighborhood is centered on a valley opening to the Bosphorus and is somewhat isolated from the main part of the city, being surrounded by nature preserves, cemeteries, and a military installation.
