Beyoğlu is a true symphony of culture when East meets West and the pulsating heartbeat of İstanbul’s day and nightlife. Istiklal Caddesi – a cobbled thoroughfare teeming with İstanbul’s colorful people – is the center of the metropolis, while around it a labyrinth of narrow, winding alleys with funky cafés, soulful bars, continental restaurants, historic cinemas, prominent theatres, and exclusive shops stretches in all directions. Taksim Square, with its impressive Monument to the Republic, points the way to the bohemian open-air museum of Beyoğlu, past the Hagia Triada Orthodox Church and the Consulate buildings. The Istanbul Nostalgic Tram quaint old but the most recognized red trams in the world takes passengers past Rumeli Han, Çiçek Pasajı, Cite de Pera, Atlas Pasajı, Galatasaray High School and several elegant consulates.
