All Metro of Istanbul

by Lion_Beat

There are actually only 2 lines of Metro in Istanbul. Both on european side.

1. The modern line from Taksim to Levent:
Taksim - Osmanbey - Sisli/Mecediyekoy - Gayrettepe - 1.Levent - 4.Levent

2. From Aksaray to Airport:
Aksaray - Emniyet - Ulubatli Topkapi - Bayrampasa - Sagmalcilar - Kartaltepe - Otogar (Big Autostation) - Terazidere - Davutpasa - Metrter - Zeytinburnu - Bakirkoy - Bahcelievler - Sirinevler/Atakoy - Yenibosna - Havaalani (Airport)
This line is not only under the ground, but on the surface too.

Note that there is also a tram line similar to the second metro line which goes only on surface from Eminonu to Zeytinburnu.

GLORIA Ferry from Odessa Ukraine to Istanbul

by jathomaz

I've seen references to the Gloria Ferry from Odessa Ukraine to Istanbul, but cannot find anything definite. Is it still in operation? if so, who can I contact about prices, schedules? I have the info on the Caldonia, but it's so expensive, wanted to find an alternate, if any. thx.

Re: GLORIA Ferry from Odessa Ukraine to Istanbul

by marsistanbul

yes,george56 right that Ukrferry operates on this route.Last year,I sailed by M/V Caledonia,was pretty enjoyable journey,due to our car,it wasn't a cheap alternative,sure that it was better than overland travel:)
it takes day(Odessa-Istanbul),but,if you have a time,it is really enjoyable sail..
an other web page for Odessa-Istanbul-Odessa
for ticketing in Odessa,there is a travel agency in side of Chornaye More Hotel.
Address: 59, Rishelyevskaya Street, Odessa
(only ten minutes walk from the railway station)
and an other option can be Turkish Airlines..

Re: GLORIA Ferry from Odessa Ukraine to Istanbul

by jathomaz

yes, I have researched the other ferry line, but as of a few years ago, the RUssian ferry, the Gloria was also sailing this route at a cheaper price. Has anyone heard of this ferry?

Yuzhnaya Palmyra is a cruise ship not a ferry and stops operations in October.


Re: GLORIA Ferry from Odessa Ukraine to Istanbul

by max_stirner

Gloria is an old ship freight and passagers, oprating sometimes beetween Ukraina and Istanbul :
No idea how to get tickets ;not sure it still runs anyway.
Ask agencies in Stambul-Karakoy or Odessa.

Travel Tips for Istanbul

Sun in winter

by Gokcecicek

This is the part I like in Istanbul... Reading newspapers under the winter sun. The lady in the middle was so lovely, I could not prevent my self from taking her photo. (Look at the couple on the corner... It seems they are enjoying the Sunday sun...)

International telephone access...

by Valentina777

International telephone access code of Turkey is 90.Then area codes. For Istanbul it is 212 (European side) and 216 (Asian side), Ankara 312 and Izmir 232. All telephone numbers are have seven digits in Turkey. If you are going to call Asian side of Istanbul from the European side, first dial the code, 0 216. From Asian side to European side first dial 0 212 and then the number. To call Turkey from a another countryfirst dial + 90 then (three digit area code), then seven digit number.
To make an international call from Turkey, first dial double zero then int. telephone code of your country, then your number. To call America will be like, 00 1 -your number-.
The best deal to call your country is by PTT (National Post, Telegram and Telephone Office) phone cards. They will come in 30, 60 or 100 credits. 100 credits will be fine for international calls. You can buy them from your hotel ( 15-30% more than the normal price), or from the post office.

The leaflets of Cagaloglu Hamami reads : Have you ever been in a Turkish bath? Yo've missed on of the lifes great experiences an never been clean....

I believe there is little I can add to this. It is just incredible to be pamper for a few hours, have all you sins exfoliated with a deep body scrub, and to aliviate tension with a good body massage.

You come out just like new.

Local craft

by Luchonda about grand bazaar

The oldest and biggest closed bazaar in the world, has around 4000 shops and over 60 alleyway, covering a huge labyrinth in the city centre.
It is the place to be for shopping - you can find almost everything - and it is a sport to bargain with the turkish vendors.
The Paperrazzia team (esp.the ladies) had a problem choosing the gifts and bargain the price, but we catched the waiting bus for the hotel, just in time. Call it and you will find it.
Juwelery, leather handycraft .... They accept creditcards - but like to receive cash, dollars or euro - doesn't matter
