Galata Kulesi, a lighthouse built by the Byzantine Emperor Anastasias in 507, was originally built of wood and was later burned during the Crusades until it was rebuilt by the Genoese in 1348. This vicissitude of the ancient tower has also been a number of other things: guard tower, prison and observatory. 

In the peak season, it is said that there will be long queues. I came over in the winter, so I went up very quickly. I took the elevator directly to the top of the tower. From the Galata Tower you can see Istanbul. I was there until the sun set and the night sky became dark. Several mosques along the river lit up and the city lit up along with them. The wind at the top of the tower was very strong. 

If you are visiting in winter, it will be very cold at the top of the tower. Fortunately, there are two restaurants at the top of the tower. There are many coffee bars and restaurants here, usually from 9:00 to 24:00. In the Galata Tower you can also enjoy oriental belly dancing, midnight performances and more.
