- What’s On
One of the neighbourhood’s best bookshops, this shop in the market district is presided over by Lütfi Seymen, known as Sakallı (Bearded) Lütfi or Büyük (Big) Lütfi. He specialises in rare books, Ottoman manuscripts, and has a selection of old photographs, postcards and magazines that are an absolute pleasure to peruse.
