Places to Visit in Istanbul: The Most Beautiful Neighborhoods of Istanbul
Cihangir and Çukurcuma Travel Route
We can start our tour with Aya Triada Church. Then we proceed to Sıraselviler Street and pass by the Romanian and Belgian Consoles. We continue towards Defterdar Yoküsü and arrive at Firuzağa Mosque. In the meantime, don’t forget to keep your head in the air and dive into the side streets while you can see beautiful buildings. Adile Naşit Sokak is diving into the streets of Çukurcuma from the places you need to see again. Zenovitch Apartment, which is decorated very elegantly and is home to The House Hotel, is one of the iconic buildings worth seeing. Don’t forget to check out famous antique shops and design workshops on Faik Pasha Avenue. You can end your trip by visiting Tom Inn, then visiting the Museum of Innocence, which is the museum of Orhan Pamuk’s novel of the same name, a wonderful collection created with great care.
Journey, Çukurcuma Cuma Cafe or Müz are the addresses you will go for breakfast or to take a break. For lunch, I recommend Miss Pizza and 49 Çukurcuma to pizza lovers and Adana Province Border to kebab lovers. For the evening hours, I will first recommend Smyrna, which I was a regular for years ago and I still love when my path falls to Cihangir. Smyrna, a place preferred by players, you can see a familiar face every time you go. This place is mostly used for wine, beer etc. as a menu. I think it’s a place that appeals to drinkers. If you want to drink raki, I recommend you to go to Hayat Cihangir or Demeti, where I love their appetizers. And, of course, Cihangir Coffee is a place where you can visit any time of the day for a meal or a small tea break. Finally, do not leave Cihangir without pickle from Asri Turşucu, where the discussion of “Vinegar or Lemon” is seen in the movie “Mutlu Günler”.
