    Big square

    This large square, dominated by the Republic Monument, is the centre of modern Istanbul, flanked by the commercial and the hotels areas. It is also the main hub to public transport.

    A busy hub of Istanbul in the Beyoglu district.

    On the western side of the square is the Monument of Independence, a patriotic sculpture of Ataturk and other revolutionary heroes erected in 1928.

    Taksim - the modern part of Istanbul

    by namidub Written Feb 11, 2006

    Visit the 'other side' of istanbul.Here, the buildings are much more modern in contrast to the older side of Sultanahmet.Still, a beautiful sight to be seen.
