The Grand Bazaar

The Grand Bazaar

You think you know what it is, you've seen pictures on TV or visited one in other countries ? Forget all that. Nothing will ever replace a visit to Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar. It is truly « Grand » gigantic, one of the largest in the world and its 4,000 shops are spread over 200,000 m².

 

The Grand Bazaar is not the caricature that we may imagine of merchants selling only fake copies of clothing. There you will find authentic products in the many stalls in the small galleries and little markets within larger markets. The Grand Bazaar is not just a tourist attraction but a very lively place for locals too. It extends even beyond its walls and this is an area where you will discover specialized traders. Pace yourself, take a little rest after this impressive visual walkabout and this abundance of goods of all kinds.

 

How to get there : take the blue tram and stop off at Beyazit.
