Sultanahmet Square, which is located in the Historic Peninsula, which is one of the most visited centers of domestic and foreign tourists and where trade is the most intense, is having its quietest days due to the coronavirus epidemic.

The squares in Kadıköy, Üsküdar, Beşiktaş and the historical Suriçi regions, especially Taksim and Istiklal Street in Beyoğlu, remained empty.
