📍 📍Taksim area, Beyoğlu, Istanbul Turkey. If you, like me, choose to walk to Taksim square uphill from Karaköy be prepared for a steep way up but also for a bunch of amazing buildings with beautiful details. You’ll really find a mix of old + new when looking around. If you don’t want to take the newly made funicular line or walk then take the tram that’s been in operation since 1875 to Tünel! It’s the second oldest tram line ever.
