The covered market or bazar, is very interesting. It is a taste of more authentic Turkey and The East. A combination of smell of Spices and fruit teas with rows of jewlers, leather products and more traditional cupper products. Bazar is divided into rows which...More

Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
