Istanbul Jewelry from Local Perspective
Hello! I am Zana, official tour guide in Istanbul. I'll tell you a little about myself: I graduated in Spanish Philology so I have a good command of Hispanic history and culture. After finishing my degree, I started studying a tour guide, which was my second profession. Why did I study all this? Because I like meeting new people, their cultures, their points of view... it's one of the things that makes me happiest in this life, in fact, I've been like this since childhood :) See you soon in Istanbul! :)
Do you want to see the jewels of Istanbul while contemplating the local life of the city? :)
We are going to visit:
1. Yeni Camii (F. 1597, one of the emblematic mosques of the city, just passing through.)
2. Mercado Popular: An old local market where you can find the best Turkish coffee stall, typical dessert shops, breakfast products, Turkish cuisine products, etc.
3. Spice Bazaar (F. 1664, the second largest indoor bazaar after the Grand Bazaar. It contains thousands of kinds of spices, teas, Turkish delight, jewelry...)
4. Rüstempaşa Camii (F. 1563, a mosque built by the famous architect Mimar Sinan, filled with precious tiles)
5. Suleiman the Magnificent Mosque: (F.1550, It was the largest mosque in all of Istanbul until 2019. A giant mosque dedicated to the most powerful Ottoman emperor Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. It is essential to see it and be in its viewpoint where you can see a spectacular view of the Golden Horn River, Bosphorus, the European and Asian part.)
6. Şerefiye Cistern: (F. in the 5th century. One of the oldest Byzantine cisterns in the historical peninsula. You will be amazed by the Istanbul history documentary screening in the cistern which you can see in the photos :) )
