Taksim Square / Istiklal Avenue

Taksim Square (Turkish:Taksim Meydanı) situated in the European part of Istanbul, is a major shopping, tourist and leisure district famed for its restaurants, shops and hotels. It is considered the heart of modern Istanbul, with the central station of the Istanbul Metro network.

Taksim is a main transportation hub and a popular destination for both tourists and the native population of Istanbul.İstiklal Caddesi, a long pedestrian shopping street, ends at this square, and a nostalgic tram runs from the square along the avenue, ending near the Tunel(1875) which is the world's second-oldest subway line after London's Underground(1863). Surrounding Taksim Square are numerous travel agencies, hotels, restaurants, and historical places.
Istiklal Avenue or Istiklal Street (Turkish:İstiklâl Caddesi) is one of the most famous avenues in Istanbul, visited by nearly 3 million people in a single day over the course of weekends. Located in the historic Beyoglu district, it is an elegant pedestrian street, approximately three kilometers long, which houses boutiques,book stores,art galleries,cinemas,theaters,libraries,cafés,pubs with live music, historical patisseries, chocolateries and restaurants.
