The old Galata docks extended from Mehmed the Conqueror’s shipyard on the Golden Horn to Tophane. At the centre of the district today is Karaköy, the busy square which opens on to the Galata Bridge. Flanking this is Perşembe Pazar, the hardware district that extends along the banks of the Golden Horn, and Tophane, that marks the Bosphorus end of Karaköy.
Karaköy, at the head of the Galata Bridge, is at the heart of Istanbul’s old docks. On one side lies Tophane, Istanbul’s trendy new arts district, on the other the incomparable hardware district. Enjoy it while you can.
