Nisantasi's Role In History
More than just the heart of Istanbul's high-end shopping district, Nisantasi plays a vital role in Turkish history. Nisantasi was the target range for the imperial army of the Ottoman sultan. In fact, the city's Turkish name translates to target stone. In the 18th century, Nisantasi was far from what it is today as it housed strawberry fields and melon orchards. It was in the 19th century when residential activity started. Nisantasi apartments and lavish homes mushroomed and replaced the bare lands.
Home To The Aristocratic Elite
What sets Nisantasi apart from all other quarters in Istanbul are the stories behind the luxurious facade of its structures. For instance, the famous architect Giulio Monegri designed the Mackas Palas, one of the captivating structures in the area, for the Sultan Abdulmecid's granddaughter. Most than just a historic building, it houses the Park Hyatt as well as Gucci and Emporio Armani retail outlets. On the other hand, the multi-storey Meccas Bermen houses Miu Miu, Dior and other high-caliber shops.
The Nisantasi Food Guide
While Nisantasi is a charming city with all of its shops, hubs and destinations, it is also a foodie's haven. The Nisantasi shopping center is the perfect place to search for a good restaurant. There are must-try restaurants in the area such as the Yummies Food Bar, a favorite local restaurant which features a menu of international dishes and Italian specialties. Hunkar Restaurant also comes with high recommendations. It is the perfect place for people who are looking for an authentic taste of traditional Turkish dishes. The New York Food & Wine Magazine features this Ottoman restaurant in one of its issues.
Staying In Nisantasi
Before being Istanbul's fashion hub, Nisantasi was a residential area with a small village culture. Getting a Nisantasi accommodation in the heart of the quarter's glamorous air is a great decision. You can kick-start your mornings by sipping coffee in one of the chic cafes while figuring out how to proceed with your fashionable Turkish getaway.
