About the neighbourhood
My neighborhood, Galata, is located in the old city center where mostly inhabited by expats and artists. This area was the hearth of the social life and was the melting pot for Armenians, Greek and Turks. Genovese enhanced Galata in the 14th century and made it their trade post. That's why it's still a cosmopolitan and a rich area.

Galata is neighbor with Taksim, Beyoglu, Karakoy and Cihangir where the heart of the city beats with its trendy restaurant, cafes, shops, markets and music places.
