Skateboard spots?

by 68maciek


It's not for me but for my 13 y.o. son, who is mad about skateboard. Do you know any spots, pools etc. in Istanbul please?

That would be :

Barbaros Meydanı and Eminönü areas

I've seen some of them at Eminonu at the end of the Gulhane Park. And maybe some indoors. More info, read it here:

Have fun!

It's not a fun at all to watch him without the helmet (it always reminds me Helmut and the converastion in a cab in one of Jarmush's moovie).Having a helmet on the head is the bigest shame for a skateborder in Poland.Quite stupid!

Lightshow by the Blue Mosque

by MalenaN

In summerevenings, at nine o'clock, there is a lightshow by the Blue mosque. The story about the construction of the mosque, by sultan Ahmet I and the architect Mehmet Aga, is heard while different parts of the mosque is in light in different colours. The language spoken is different different evenings.
There is no admission.

We were standing at the entry of their apartment building. This family was great. They gave us nuts etc and we served champagne to them. The oldest member of their family put on his lovely hat and started to dance with the crowd. He was amazing. :)

A is for Apple (Tea)

by gilabrand

Year round - winter, spring, summer or fall – tea served in little gold-rimmed glasses is the most popular beverage in Istanbul. It is offered on every conceivable occasion. With a Polish mother-in-law, I am used to the idea of every meal ending with a steaming hot glass of tea. But the Turkish custom goes beyond mealtime. It seems to accompany all human interaction. Shopkeepers offer you tea to draw you into their shops and get you to look at their wares. No transaction is closed without an offer of tea. The men huddled around their backgammon games in outdoor cafes always have glasses of tea within arm’s reach. Tea sellers walk around the parks and bazaars balancing brass trays laden with glasses of tea.

Turkey, of course, is not alone in its tea obsession. The English, the Japanese, the Chinese, the Russians – they all love their tea and have invented all sorts of ceremonies and rituals to go along with it. Turks drink their tea dark and sweet, and without milk. But “elma chay” - apple tea - is the tea of choice for many tourists.

Now, I’m not knocking apple tea. I liked it very much and drank a lot of it in Istanbul. But here’s an interesting factoid for you. It’s not tea. It’s hot apple juice.

At a restaurant near our hotel on our first night in Istanbul, we did have “apple tea” brewed from teabags. This is what tea mavens would call a “fruit infusion.” To qualify as real tea, the beverage in question must be made from the leaves of a plant called Camellia sinensis. All the other “apple tea” we drank in Istanbul was simply apple syrup diluted with boiling water.

This is not like Istanbul, but...

it is in! SAMATYA
That's a part of the old city, inside the old city walls, facing the Marmara Sea. Actually Samatya was a small village even before the Istanbul became a city.
That's quite amazing combination of many things.
hard to explain in words...
