panoramic view of Istanbul

This hill gives a nice, panoramic view of Istanbul and the Bosphorus Strait. It gives a nice stroll too, with trees and flowers around.

Highest hill in istanbul located on the asian side. If you like nature and simplicity, it is worth the drive across the bridge from european side to asian side. you also get to see beautiful residential districts, which are completely different from the European side. Once you arrive, you can grab a doner kepab sandwich or some simple parties and... More

Lovely place to enjoy the sunset with family. Many cafes and restaurants open there. Very good prices too. (2 tl for tea and fresh simit).. Play area for kids and nice walking trails.. Get your camera prepared for stunning sunset photos.

Staying in Uskudar

Neighbourhood Profile
Uskudar
Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s most densely populated neighbourhoods. Once a Greek colony, later a haven for people from across the Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons. Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by its myriad treasures than by its many thousand residents. And with fairytale settings such as the “Maiden’s Tower” as well as grand examples of Ottoman Era architecture, plenty of parks, a gorgeous and lengthy coastline, and some of Turkey’s holiest sites, there’s no end to the sightseeing possibilities. Easily reached from the city’s European shores via a steady network of ferries, time spent in Uskudar reveals a “real life” Istanbul that many who experience find extremely fascinating.
