Can anyone give me an update on the flooding in Istanbul such as the road closure update from Ataturk Airport to Taksim Square. Also were the Grand Bazaar and Egyptian Spice Market affected by the flooding?

Thank you for any information.

Travel Tips for Istanbul


by balhannah

RAHMI KOC MUSEUM........Another good display is the Trains. One of particular interest was the Sultans.

Among some of Sultan Abdulaziz achievements were.....
He established the first Ottoman railroad network and Sirkeci Train Station in Istanbul.
He established the Istanbul Archaeological Museum.
He was made the 756th Knight of the Order of the Garter in 1867 and the 127th Grand Cross of the Order of the Tower and Sword.

His beautifully restored coach was built in 1866 at Birmingham, and presented to him as a gift from the Ottoman Railway company, which operated the Izmir-Aydin route.
The Sultan used the carriage during his tour of Europe in 1867. It was restored at the Museum's workshops in 1998.

You can also take a short ride in one of the period carriages behind a diesel locomotive. The train runs every hour, on the hour on Saturdays and Sundays, and tickets are free to paying Museum visitors.

OPEN Tuesday - Friday: 10-5 PM Saturday - Sunday: 10-7 PM CLOSED MONDAYS

No Shoes Indoors!

by Geoff_Wright

It is the custom in Turkey, when entering a private house, to remove ones shoes. Having been in the Middle East previously, I know this, and even at home in England I don't wear shoes indoors. So, if you are staying with Turkish friends remember this, and take some slippers wth you.

Deniz Muzesi (Naval Museum)

by WulfstanTraveller

Istanbul has a fairly small but interesting Naval Museum on the European shore of the Bosphorus north of Dolmabahce. It contains a number of imperial Ottoman caiques, rowboats used by the Ottoman sultans, many quite large and ornate. It also possesses lanterns and other artifacts from Ottoman warships such as the battlecruiser Yavuz Sultan Selim (ex-German Goeben), the Turkish navy's last capital ship.

Carpets in Istanbul

by Pete.Gibson about carpets

As with a lot of countries in this part of the world, Carpets are a good buy, the quality does vary quite considerably so choose cafefully as a general rule of thumb the more stiches per square inch the better the quality, look around a few different shops to get an idea of availablity , ask for their price on a good quality and a poor quality , then set yourself a budget
