It was my last night in Istanbul. I was on my way to dinner, noticed the shop and went in to look around. The owner greeted me and offered me tea. His English was not the best but we were able to understand each other. The Zakir Gallery had a small selection of handmade leather bags. But due to the... More

I went into the Zakir Gallery each one of four days before I made my purchase. There was no pressure. I enjoyed looking at the hand made items in a well-lit shop.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
