The Galata Bridge is one of Istanbul’s most charming landmarks. Much more than simply a link connecting the old and new across the Golden Horn, it’s also a place where the city’s locals gather to fish, eat, drink, smoke and shop.

The Bridge itself is quite new; it was built in 1992 to replace an older, iron structure and the three bridges before that. At a length of almost 500 metres, the Galata Bridge has a walkway and lanes for traffic and for the city’s tramway. The T1 Zeytinburnu – Kabatas tram line passes over the Bridge, with stops on either side at Eminonu and Karakoy.

The views are spectacular from the top of the Galata Bridge. Peer out at Kadikoy’s giant balloon on the Asian side, the ramshackle Ottoman houses and mosques of the old town on the Eminonu peninsula, and the bohemian chic of Beyoglu on the opposite side.
