Young family travel to Istanbul in July

by YoTravel

Hello,
What is it like traveling around Istanbul with a young family? Youngest would be about 1 1/2 years old. Would there be a lot of nappy changing stations available?

Is the weather ok in July?

Thank you very much for your help!

There are no "nappy changing stations." Many of the bathrooms don't even have toilets - just a hole in the ground. Istanbul will be hot and crowded.

Thank you for your answers. I'll reconsider about going this summer. Maybe next spring might be better all around.

." Many of the bathrooms don't even have toilets - just a hole in the ground. Istanbul will be hot and crowded" says our dear friend Gila.

Dear Gila,Now this time I want to say you "One Minute"

1- There are no "nappy changing stations". Do you have in Israil? Where did you changed nappies of your children? Just on the table of the restaurant? or in the bathroom of the restaurant?
2-"Many of the bathrooms don't even have toilets- just a hole in the ground."
Turkish toilet is different then european toilet. It is alla turca toilet. or squat toilet. It is well known in all old Turkish territories also in Israil. No just a hole in the ground.

Yes it is hot in July.

Travel Tips for Istanbul

Istanbul

by ania70pl

Istanbul is a city placed on two continents - Europa and Asia. Really big city. A few times I saw it from the plane and it was wonderful view. Turkish pilots are really proud of this city and if the plain route goes above Istanbul they always show it to passengers.
An absolutely must sees in Istanbul are: Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace.

Car park

by Lalique

Nisantasi parking can be very peculiar....

Well, just imagine, you need to drop by your girlfriend, there is no free parking plance in front of her house (to be frank, parking is a nightmare in Nisantasi), so what can you do? Yeap, after giving it a second thought, you park you Mercedes S600 right on pedestrian sidewalk, clogging somebody's garage...

Uskudar's open air cafes

by hekate

Uskudar seems to be off the beaten path for tourists. Seems that most of them, like me, go there to take the boat to the Maiden's Tower.

So, I was walking alongside the sea shore to get to the boat when I saw a couple of those open air cafes. There were many people (mostly local not tourists) who sitting there chilling out, sipping tea or coffee and enjoying the view to the European side of the Bosphorus. Somehow I assume it is kind of a local custom, so that is why I put it here, if I am mistaken please correct me :)

Since I am a lazy person I felt quite tempted to do it myself but the only thing that stopped me was the fact that the weather was too cold for me to stay at one place for a longer time. I am sure that if I get there when it is warmer I would stay in such a cafe for at least 1-2 hours :)

Tarabya

by H-TownJourneyman

Tarabya is a quaint, tasteful area of Istanbul, located along the Bosphorus on the European side, north of the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge. It is a lovely place to stroll alongside the sea and have a bite to eat or some tea at one of several restaurants and cafes here. The Grand Tarabya Hotel has been a landmark here since it opened in the 1960's, but is currently closed and under renovations. Definately worth a trip up here to get away from the busy city center, but if you do not have a car, and plan to take a taxi, it is best to go in the late morning or early afternoon to avoid traffic, and a high fare!

BARBAROS - Mausoleum, Cemetery, Statue

by balhannah

The statue is of famous Barbarossa Hayreddin Pasha, Fleet Admiral of the Ottoman Navy (1478 – 1546) who dominated the Mediterranean for decades. He became known as Barbarossa Redbeard. Few other Turkish admirals ever achieved the overwhelming naval power of Barbaros.

He finally returned to Istanbul, and in 1545 left the city for his final naval expeditions for the last time. He then sailed back to Istanbul and built a palace on the Bosphorus, in the present-day district of Buyukdere.

Barbarossa died in 1546 in his seaside palace.

A tall mausoleum in Barbaros Park, built in 1541, is at the site where his fleet used to assemble. His memorial was built in 1944, next to his mausoleum, and is right right next to the Turkish Naval Museum. He was quite a impressive looking person on his Statue! On the back of the statue are some verses ....quote....

Whence on the sea's horizon comes that roar?
Can it be Barbarossa now returning
From Tunis or Algiers or from the Isles?
Two hundred vessels ride upon the waves,
Coming from lands the rising Crescent lights:
O blessed ships, from what seas are ye come?

There is an interesting little cemetery here as well.

LOCATED near the ferry port of the district of Besiktas on the European side of Istanbul.
