Grand Bazaar, Istanbul Overview

Grand Bazaar of Istanbul is one of the oldest and largest markets in the world. The Bazaar encompasses 64 streets, 4000 shops, restaurants, and banks, making it almost its own little city. It is often considered to be among the very first shopping malls in the world. It can be reached through the Beyazıt-Kapalıçarşı tram station.

The market has been renovated countless times throughout its long history. The walls of the bazaar are adorned with lovely detailing, and several columns are laid out throughout. The shops cover absolutely all of your requirements, with dedicated areas of the market for gold, carpets, leather and so on. The Cehavir Bedestan in the centre is home to antique wares from ancient times. The market attracts around 250,000 to 400,000 visitors daily! Its origin can be traced back to 1461 and it has grown steadily since then. It is the hub of the city’s commerce but a visit here is more than about shopping. It is a way to experience the Turkish way of life.
