Cornucopia’s travel guide

Bakırkoy


Not a place visitors spend much time, but an important sprawling residential district that lies between the airport and the landwalls, and takes under its wing the Modernist quarter of Atatököy, a good stretch of Marmara coastline, the new Hippodrome – with perhaps the best Arab horse races in the world – not to mention a superb private camera museum, and, in Gelik, one of Istanbul's old favourites, now deprived of its seaside, but still serving succulent cheesy 'Gelik Köfte'. Worth finding out more about. Curiously it does not appear in Google maps.
