If you want to visit Istanbul, you've probably heard of Istiklal Street and seen a photo of the old red historical tram in the center of this renowned avenue here and there. Istiklal Street is one of Istanbul's most renowned avenues among visitors and Turks alike, and it serves as a hub for many tourism and entertainment events in the city. This renowned boulevard also includes numerous historical monuments going back to the Ottoman and Middle Ages eras, as well as many historical landmarks dating back to the nineteenth and eighteenth centuries. 

Istiklal Street begins from Taksim Square in the north and runs all the way down to Tunel Square in the south, ultimately leading to GalipDede with its ancient gate and, a little distance beyond, the Dervish Lodge at Galata Mevlevihanesi. If you continue downhill, you will reach Galata Tower, which is situated on the opposite side of Galipdede Street. In the middle of the path, there is a divide in Galatasaray Square. This street runs for one and a half kilometers through the renowned Beyoglu neighborhood, and it is lined with luxury and antique stores, restaurants, cafés, and many pubs. Furthermore, the nighttime on this street is indescribable in terms of its energy, attractiveness, and bustle! Let us now introduce you to some of the most renowned locations on Istiklal Street that you may visit when you visit Istanbul. 

The Pera Museum 

The renowned Pera Museum, which opened in 2005, is a privately owned museum situated in the Tepebasi district near the right end of Istiklal Street. This museum is housed inside a historic structure that was formerly known as the Bristol Hotel. This museum features Orientalist palettes, Anatolian weights and measures, Kutahya Tiles, and Ceramics, as well as many exhibits, publications, audio-visual events, and educational activities.  It is one of the best museums.

Ataturk Cultural Center

It has hosted theater events in Istanbul, the Turkish State Opera and Ballet, concerts by the Istanbul State Symphony Orchestra and Choir, Modern Folk Music Ensemble, and Classical Turkish Music Choir, as well as the Arts and Culture Summer Festival, and it is an important example of Turkish architecture from the 1960s.
