Other Attractions in Istanbul

A public bath that is in use from 1584 is the famous Hamam Cemberlitas. Though a bit expensive you will never regret the experience. It has an incredible round marble room with a slab of hot marble in the middle to soak on and basins of marble on the side of the room with hot running water to bathe in. It is surely a wonder to be able to experience a sauna from the yesteryears.

A marvelous piece of architecture is what you can call the Kirik Aqueduct (Kovukkemer). It was constructed over the base of an old Roman conduit between 1554-1562 and is 35 meters high and 408 meters long.

Other places of interest are the Istiklâl Caddesi, a fashion street from the past and boating on the Bosphorus can be adventurous too.
