Walking in Fener and Balat

City Walk, To Do
About This Project

Fener and Balat are two districts whose popularity has increased in recent years. These neighboring districts can be easily visited with a few hours walking tour.

These two districts, which reflect the Ottoman period Istanbul in the best way, have great historical importance. Fener and Balat districts represent the mosaic structure of Istanbul with the mosques, churches and synagogues they contain.

Fener, where the Greek Orthodox people lived, and Balat, which was the Jewish quarter, contain a considerable cultural heritage. To fully understand the history of Fener and Balat, it is recommended to visit these neighborhoods with a private tour guide.
