Travel Tips for Istanbul

Views of Istanbul on the Bosphorus

by Willettsworld

Probably the most popular ferry route on the Bosphorus is that from Eminonu to Uskudar (Sultanahmet to the Asian Side where most of the tourist attractions are located). The ferries are a good, fun and cheap way to see the different views of Istanbul.

Kucuksu Mansion

by Erkmen

Kucuksu Kasri (Mansion) on the asian sideof Bosphorus with its elegant style is so attractive..

We Turks believe every guest in front of our door is a guest of gods.. And Each house have a door.. some could be so stylish..

Local soldiers has the custom

by manuelEB

of carrying weapons...
This custom is espeacially scaring for Japanese tourist and visitors. We live in a society where weapons are banned and even the represive forces of the State do not display them like in the rest of the countries that I've visited. What are the chances of an accident? No one knows I just recommend to walk fast cause you would never know what did hit you...

Princes' Islands: Büyükada - Hiristos Manastiri

by vtveen

Close to the football ‘stadium’ on the Hill of Isa, Büyükada’s second highest hill, lies a little monastery. It is called Hiristos Manastiri (Monastery of Jesus Christ).

It is one of the oldest monasteries on the island and probably built on the ruins of a very old convent of 1597, whose foundation might trace back to the Byzantine era.

It was once built by Bishop Meletios Pigas. August 6th was a special holiday, which in one sense symbolized the grape harvest. On that day (in the past) the priest offered grapes to any visitors.

When we reached the monastery, it seemed to be closed. But the two gates were yet open and we found the sexton, living in the house on the premises. He showed us the lovely church with some beautiful icons.
This is really a lovely quiet spot.

(thanks to VT-friends 'alperlst' and 'mertmh' for the information)

Unique Ceramics

by ogb4619 about Tugra Ceramic Handicraft Center

Tugra Ceramics claims to produce only ceramics of the highest quality and to make authentic relicas of tiles and other adornments from the major mosques and palaces in Turkey.

The owners include an American educated guy called Chris Kitrinos of Turkish/Greek parentage.
He's a real nice guy, very helpful and informative and NOT hard sell.

The quality of their goods is so impressive that you will probably buy anyway.
We have a passion for quality ceramics and porcelain and the shop has a huge range of ceramics from tiles, plates, dishes, figurines and vases of every shape and colour.

having spoken to and visited several other ceramics shops, i believe their story that their products come from their own caramics factories in the eastern half of Turkey where only the best quality clays are found. That their wares are authentic reproductions of tiles etc from Turkish palaces and mosques is difficult to authenticate, but who cares. They are strikingly beautiful and very reasonably priced at half what you might pay for a Royal Doulton. There are many ceramics shops in Istanbul but personally, i'm more comfortable with this one than any of the dozens of other shops that we visited. Well yes.
I guess you can pay as little as EU50 for a small plate or figurine and up to EU1,000 for a large bowl.
