Beyoğlu is a district located on the European side of İstanbul, Turkey, separated from the old city (historic peninsula of Constantinople) by the Golden Horn. It was known as Pera (meaning "Across" in Greek) during the Middle Ages, and this name remained in common use until the early 20th century and the establishment of the Turkish Republic.The district encompasses other neighborhoods located north of the Golden Horn, including Galata (the medieval Genoese citadel from which Beyoğlu itself originated, which today is known as Karaköy), Tophane, Cihangir, Şişhane, Tepebaşı, Tarlabaşı, Dolapdere and Kasımpaşa, and is connected to the old city center across the Golden Horn through the Galata Bridge and Unkapanı Bridge. Beyoğlu is the most active art, entertainment and night life centre of Istanbul.
Located on the European side of Istanbul, Beyoglu is the entertainment district of the city, with its main concentration on Istikal Avenue. The main action surely takes place there, but don't miss out on the charming cobblestone streets next to Galata Tower. There are plenty of local Turkish eateries and tea houses, as well as the occasional Turkish boutiques selling exquisite rugs, ceramics and other Turkish delights.
