Safest Locations To Live in Istanbul!

The historical and cultural beauty of the city lures everyone to visit Istanbul. However, moving to Istanbul is something else! Due to the availability of the best colleges and universities, a very advanced health care system, and the fact that most of Istanbul's neighbourhoods are secure and elite places, millions of people around the world are constantly considering moving with their families to Istanbul and living there as well. 

Turkey is a commercial, touristic, agricultural, and industrial country all at once, and this fact attracts and encourages investors to come and develop their businesses in this country and profit from its economic growth.

We will address residency in Istanbul's best neighbourhoods in this article, based on the quality of education, welfare, living, and safety, as determined by numerous academic and social studies conducted by city authorities and universities.

Before we get into the meat of our discussion, there are a few details about Istanbul that you should be aware of. 

Istanbul is a massive city with a population of nearly 20 million people, and living in it is as beautiful and pleasant as it is challenging, owing to the fact that it is a congested city with traffic and parking issues as one of its major issues! 

Istanbul is, of course, a highly developed area, with excellent public transportation and a diverse range of transportation options. During your Istanbul trip, you probably realized this.

European or Anatolian Side?

There are some sayings that can be true for some people, such as the Asian side of Istanbul being better suited for housing and security than the European side.

It is often preferable to choose a residence with internal parking, protection, and cleaning services when looking for a place to live. It is also better to select a residence that is close to your workplace, if possible, to reduce commuting distances that can exceed three hours per day. 

If you're retired, it's best to live in a quiet community outside of town.


Since several of its fine 19th-century European-style buildings are being restored, and the neighborhood is close to all the day- and nightlife action on and close to Istiklal Caddesi, it is one of Istanbul's most interesting neighborhoods for young, innovative, upwardly-mobile Istanbullus and foreigners in the know to live. If you visit Istanbul, you should check Istiklal Street.

Cihangir can be the prism through which you see real Istanbul everyday life if you want to get off the beaten path, away from the tourist crowds. There are numerous café-restaurants, as well as wine and gourmet shops, in this area. This is the place to go if you're looking for antiques. The adjacent ukurcuma neighborhood is the epicenter of Istanbul's antiques shopping.


Atasehir is a modern residential area on Asian side of Istanbul, distinguished by the presence of many residential projects and newly constructed homes, as well as a transportation network, a modern road, luxurious and modern public facilities, and numerous recreational areas. Many foreigners now choose to live in Atasehir because of the district’s high standard of living. Atasehir may not have important spots in Istanbul, but it is one of the best options to live at.


This area is located on the city’s Asian side, and it is known for its vibrant atmosphere and city life, as well as the presence of historical buildings in Istanbul. In addition to being a significant hub for transportation and shopping, it is known for the presence of many spots, cultural events, and arts. It has a range of significant shopping malls, cafes, bars, and high- and low-end restaurants. Kadikoy is one of Istanbul's most famous and diverse neighborhoods.


Located on Istanbul's European side, this neighborhood is known for its simple and modern lifestyle, as well as its many archaeological monuments and historical buildings. The Galata Tower, Istiklal Street, and Taksim Square are perhaps the most well-known features of this neighborhood. With their distinctive architecture, streets, and lively atmosphere, the neighborhoods of Galata, Asmalimescit, and Cihangir are so lively and good to reside in.
