We walked and walked and walked...and were sorely disappointed. There is a nice statue in the middle...Burger King and McDonalds are nearby. We thought it would be of the order of Plaza Mayor in Lima or Madrid. Nope.
Till the end of October an interesting and educational festival will be open on the square presenting various skilled local artisans. A lady is selling hand embroidered broches and other jewellery, a gentleman is making pictures of Istanbul sceneries by carving holes, filling them with...More

The square and the Istiklal Street leading off its South west corner are a must see for Istanbul. The people, the restaurants, bars, shops and street musicians make it a very vibrant and exciting area.
Taksim square is full of people any part of the day or night. Especially in the night past midnight also you see throng of people walking by busy talking, shopping , stopping by to hear the music or other activities going on the street.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
