Traveling from Istanbul to Varna

by Aussie_Simo

Hey guys,

How are you all?

The name is Simon and I'm from Australia, and I will be coming to Istanbul briefly to travel to Bulgaria where my girlfriend is from. Now, I will be coming over for her birthday which is on the 14th of August, but I will be arriving at the Atatürk International Airport on the 13th of August in the morning, so I will need to find the fastest way from there to Varna. I know there are buses from Istanbul, and take roughly 7 hours or so, but is this the fastest way, and does anyone know where I can book these buses online?

Any additional help will be highly welcomed!

Cheers,

Simo

You can also try the following company
They have a bus departs on 13 August at 19:30 PM and arrive at 4:30 AM. Ticket price is 37 USD (55 Turkish Lira)
You can book a ticket from their website but it is Turkish!

When you try to book a ticket chose the departure name as Istanbul (Bayrampasa). To go to terminal take metro/tube from the airport and get of Otogar station. It takes 20 minutes to go to coach station by metro from the airport

Thankyou both for your answers, and they're both great...but is there any reason the buses don't travel during the day? Both seem to leave at night and arrive early in the morning, which is abit inconvenient as it's very early in the morning, especially if my girlfriend is to pick me up at the bus station at that time? :-S

Are there other options that get there sooner?

Cheers guys

Since the final destination is Silistra, a place in northern Bulgaria, it leaves at night and arrive early mooring.
Unfortunately there is no other option.

The flights are connected at Vienna or Budapest but I think it is stupid to pay 700-800 USD for such short distance.

MOSQUE PROTOCOL:

Many mosques have rules posted outside. Some are more strict than others about allowing entry, particularly when it comes to dress, and others will supply a cover-up if you are not dressed appropriately. It is probably better to err on the side of caution. Women should have a scarf for their heads and a shawl, etc. to cover arms and legs if necessary.

An attendant at the entrance of most mosques will direct you with your shoes and supplying a coverup (if available and needed). At the New Mosque you were not allowed to touch the ground with your shoeless feet. You had to stand on the ground, remove one shoe and place your foot on the mat. You then had to balance to take off the other shoe without touching the ground or the mat until the shoe was off. If unsure what to do, ask the attendants or watch others.

Some mosques don't allow photography at all and some only allow photography without a flash. Be sure to know how to turn your flash off!

Most importantly, do realize that a mosque is a place of worship so please be respectful!

The following are from actual mosque signs (Blue Mosque):

Please remove your shoes and place them in the shelf or put them in a bag.

The ladies should wear a scarf and long skirt.

The gentlemen should be in trousers not in shorts.

Should not speak aloud inside the mosque.

Photograph should not be taken during the prayers.

Should wait at the rear until the prayer ends.

Should not go beyond the area allocated for visitors.

No smoking (sign in the courtyard).

The following are from Yeni Camii (New Mosque):

Please take your shoes off and do not step on the entrance with your shoes.

Please cover your head and arms.

Do not enter with short, bermuda, and miniskirt.

Some quick tips

by mehbos37



Eventhough I know many of VT members are very self-sufficient sophisticated tourists ,these simple tips still may help them:

-If you are a real backpacker you should stay in Sultanahmet area which is known as -the old peninsula-. The majority of touristic places and budget hotels with reasonable rooms are there.
-If you tend to spend an equally balanced historic&fun vacation you may stay around Taksim area.The trendiest bars,club are intense in that area...
-If you prefer to stay and live the way that locals do,don't stay Ýn Sultanahmet.
-Allthough Istanbul is a vast city ,you may stay even in the Asian side which is only 25 minutes far from Sultanahmet by ferry...
Use sea transportation as much as you can.Very enjoyable and cheap..
-Nisantasi is a very hip place to be with lots of nice restaurants and cosy bars and located close to Taksim.
-Bagdat Caddesi(Street) is a very long boulevard like Champs Ellyses in Paris where you may shocked to see very chic people of thousands walking by,crowding the cafes and the elegant boutiques..(It is in the Asian side,but the most european side of Istanbul)
-In summer people tend to spend more time around Bosphorus,mainly Ortakoy,Bebek,Hisar.Laila and Reina are the hot spots but very expensive places with a dress code...
-Parkorman (A huge forest) is located 10km north of Taksim and you may enjoy many diferent bars,restaurants and the olympic pool.I went there many times because Moby,Massive Attack chose that spot to give concerts..


EYUP MOSQUE TOMBS & CEMETERY

by balhannah

EYUP........The name comes from Abu Ayyub al-Ansar................. the companion and standard bearer of the Prophet Mohammed who is said to have fallen in battle during the attack on the walls of Constantinople by Arab armies in the 700's,................. died and as his last request was to be buried here.

After the city was taken, Sultan Mehmet ordered a tomb and Mosque to be built. In 1453, during Sultan Mehmet II's siege of Constantinople, the grave was said to have been miraculously rediscovered.

The grave is a sacred site in both religion and Turkish political history, as Abu Ayyub was not only a friend of the Prophet, but the key to the greatest Ottoman victory.
Ottoman officials wished to be buried at or near the site of Abu Ayyub's resting place, with the cemetery becoming one of Istanbul's most desirable final resting places.
It stretches way up the hills to Pierre Loti cafe area and lookout.

THE TOMB IS THE THIRD HOLIEST PILGRIMAGE SITE IN ISLAM, (After Mecca & Jerusalem)

An interesting area to visit. It was quite busy when I was there on a Wednesday, evidently
On Fridays, holy days for Islam, throngs of the faithful visit the mausoleum.

WHERE .......At the Eyup Mosque complex
