  1. Don't forget Istanbul," a project which aims to promote and protect Istanbul's history, historical figures, places and works has been completed by Istanbul Şehir University. The project, which was initiated in 2015 to promote Istanbul's cultural and historical values, protect its heritage and make the documentation of such information accessible to the public has now been completely digitalized, according to a statement by the Touring and Automobile Club of Turkey (TTOK). As part of the online project, Istanbul Şehir University has digitized more than 10,000 documents. Around 1,000 documents were uploaded on the site and paired with their relevant locations on the map of Istanbul for the first phase of the project. Users can now access these documents via their computers, mobile phones or tablets, the university said. "This project is very special as regards to the digital work and resources it provides," Peyami Çelikcan, the rector of Istanbul Şehir University, said. "We had previously digitized our rich Istanbul archives, but this time we also shared these materials in an effort to set an example to all libraries, and invite them to participate in such developments in the world," he added. The "Don't forget Istanbul" project can be accessed via unutmaistanbul.sehir.edu.tr and is now also available as a mobile app on iOS and Android devices. Source: Daily Sabah

  9. Over the last decade, Istanbulites have been offered many projects that allow them a new way to travel around the city or to pass across the two sites of the Bosporus. The last of those projects is Kabataş-Üsküdar Pedestrian Tunnel Project, which will offer Istanbulites a walk underneath the seabed. Istanbulites are getting ready for another groundbreaking project that will provide them with the opportunity to transverse the Bosporus under the sea with a project launched by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality. The last time people in Istanbul experienced a walk right on the Bosporus dates back to 1954, when large masses of ice traveled from the Danube through Istanbul's Bosporus on their way to the Black Sea. It was a very cold winter, but the people of Istanbul enjoyed the view walking on the ice on the Bosporus strait that had restricted marine traffic that day. Of course, every year, the participants of the Istanbul Marathon enjoy running or walking from the Asian side to the European side across the 15 July Martyrs Bridge, accompanied by beautiful Bosporus views. There are nearly a dozen ways to simply travel between the two sides of the strait by using public transportation and the three bridges built over the strait. The first step was taken for the "Kabataş-Üsküdar Pedestrian Tunnel Project," which will connect the Asian and European sides of Istanbul underneath the Bosporus Strait. The drilling tender for this project, which was described by Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Kadir Topbaş as "one of the most important works of this mastery period," has finished. Anadolu Agency monitored the drilling works, which started with the drilling vessel located near Kabataş. The tunnel is designed to connect two continents underneath the Bosporus Strait between Üsküdar and Kabatas, and will be two kilometers (1.2 miles) long. The top floor of the two-story tunnel, which will be constructed 20 meters (65 feet) under the sea, will be used by pedestrians and bicyclists. The lower floor of the tunnel, on the other hand, will be allocated for rubber-tired electric vehicle traffic. When the tunnel, which is to be completed in 2019, is opened to service, the passengers getting off the Marmaray in Üsküdar will be able to reach the Kabataş subway by passing to the other side using a moving walkway under the sea. With the project, the Asian and European sides will be once again connected, this time by the walking-tube crossing. Kadir Topbaş, who submitted the 2015 Annual Activity Report to the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipal Assembly, also announced the "vision projects" for his third term in the office, which he described as "his mastery period." Topbaş stressed that Üsküdar and Kabataş were integral points for the city, stating that these two regions would be connected with a pedestrian tunnel under the Bosporus Strait. Source: Daily Sabah

  11. Hello friends, I have a question in my mind which I would like to share and ask. What is the average age of a building (Bina) in Istanbul? An apartment complex age as defined by Belediye laws? If someone has an apartment in a building and after its age is over lets say after 40 years when the building is demolished and a new building is made on that plot; what happens to those who already owned an apartment in the old building? Are they accommodated or their money is finished as old building is gone and they need to buy another flat if they wish to live in the building? What does law say about these two things and what is practice normally done? Looking forward.

  16. Traffic is the biggest problem in Turkey, especially in İstanbul. People have a hard time because of the traffic problems in İstanbul. İstanbul has many traffic problems such as, not subway, uneducated drivers, unplanned roads and many cars. Moreover, government know that, These problems have patmanent solutions. However, government can’t maket them. To begin with İstanbul is unplanned place. Roads and traffic’s field are jumble. For example, every morning mecidiyekoy, taksim and fisrt river are crowded so many cars can’t go along. In addition, Navigation devices improved day by day. People can’t use it in İstanbul because streets and roads aren’t properly and regular. Another problem is uneducated drivers in İstanbul. Turkey, especially in İstanbul driver’s license is served in a short period of three months so many traffic accidents and traffic problems are happening in banglore. To demostrate, drivers get license quarterly but they can’t be trainee so roads are filled with many amateur drivers. Last but mot least, İstanbul is a really crowded city. There are 15 million people so car’s companies buy a lot of car i n İstanbul then many accidents and deaths happen on. For instance, Although expensive oil gives banks credit to allow people to take cars and people are stil continue to get the car this will adversely affect trafic of İstanbul. Lastly, people have drafted the subway for last years in İstanbul. Subway is really important for regular city and smooth traffic. Many countries tihs infrastructure was built years ago but the foundation this year, was thrown in İstanbul. Unfortunetly this situation is a bitter truth. To sum up, traffic problems increased in İstanbul day by day. These problems causes accident and deaths. There are uneducated drivers, unplanned roads and field, buying many cars and not subway. Transportation is a considerable factor for people but in İstanbul alone it isn’t important. If you want to get help and information , I give you some important agencies concerning with special driving courses which you get special driving lessons in istanbul traffic. Please note Here are some links with driving courses agencies in İstanbul; Direksiyon Eğitimi Merkezi Direksiyon Dersi Direksiyon Merkezi By written Burak Avcı Driving Academy in İstanbul

  23. Being close to the Topkapı Palace, Sultan Ahmed Mosque was regarded as the Supreme Imperial Mosque in İstanbul. A 19-year-old Sultan, Sultan Ahmed I, started digging ceremoniously in the presence of high officials until he was tired. Thus began the construction in 1609 that continued until it was finished in 1616. He appointed his royal chief architect Sedefkar Mehmed Aga, one of the apprentices of Architect Sinan, to be in charge of the construction. He designed one of the last examples of the classical period’s architectural style. It incorporates Byzantine architecture with that of traditional Islamic. Built by Sultan Ahmed I as a part of a large complex, it is originally called as Sultan Ahmed Mosque. However, visitors fascinated with the beautiful turquoise blue tiles always remember it as the Blue Mosque. The complex consisted of a mosque, tombs, fountains, medreses (schools of theology), a health center, kitchens for the poor, shops, a bath, rental rooms, houses and store houses.
