From the Bosphorus, Ortaköy is one of the least missable suburbs, because it sits right beside the Bosphorus Bridge on the European side.

As you enter Ortaköy, the strong smell of baked potatoes greets you.You wander along the cobblestone paved narrow streets.The silversmiths, each one selling intricate, eye selling jewellery, take you into a completely different world.You are, in deed, astonished.
