Beyazit is a historical area in the vibrant Turkish city of Istanbul. At the heart of the area is Beyazit Square, where you will find the Beyazit Watch Tower and the Beyazit Mosque - both awe-inspiring examples of Ottoman architecture.
After visiting these sites you can find small, traditional eateries in and around the square, in which you can fill up on delicious Turkish cuisine. There are also tea gardens all around the neighbourhood, perfect for sitting in and watching the world go by.
The Grand Bazaar, close by in Fatih, is the biggest and oldest example of a covered market that Istanbul has to offer. If you want to buy any trinkets or souvenirs simply take a stroll over, have a look in some of the thousands of shops and maybe try out your haggling skills. Sahaflar Çarsisi, or the old book bazaar is a must-see for any literature lovers. Nearby, you will also find the Museum of Turkish Calligraphy Art.
Beyazit’s location is such that it is easy to venture out of the district and discover many of the other treats Istanbul has to offer. For the best selection of affordable hotels in this area of Istanbul, book your accommodation with Hotels4U.com.
