The most famous in istanbul

The Galata Bridge is the most famous of Istanbul. It represents the union of East and West, and in fact, unites these two worlds as the conceptual boundaries that have long marked. If you go to Istanbul, do not stop crossing, is symbolic ... And besides, the underside of the bridge is full of places to eat the delicious fish, smoking a shisha or drink tea even chill-out plan. Although fish snack bars, at the eastern end, are cheaper and equally rich... Moreover, if you approach the Galata Tower, climbing the steep streets (almost not necessary map, just go to your silhouette and ask if any villager loses sight), and go up to the terrace at the high, the views of Istanbul mosques and palaces will open before your eyes, and you think you're flying

Really charming place

Although the bridge's architecture is nothing special, it's still a really charming place. It's a place you'll cross 1,000 times to see the ships sailing around the Golden Horn, the silhouette of the Galata Tower rising above the buildings of the Beyoğlu neighborhood, the profile of the New Mosque and the myriad minarets that rise up from the seven hills of Istanbul.

The bridge, which connects the Beyoğlu and Eminönü districts, is always full of people coming and going, street vendors, seagulls, and lots of lots of local fishermen trying their luck. The smell of the sea rises from the water and intermingles with the smell of fried fish emanating from the Eminönü pier and the aroma of hookah smoke from the cafes under the bridge where men gather to spend hours playing backgammon.

Morning fisherman

The first morning you're in Istanbul, I recommend taking a walk down to the water in Eminönü and taking a walk across the Galata Bridge. It's full of local fishermen passing the time, chatting, and drinking tea. Taking in this quintesentially Istanbul sight, along with the incredible views of Beyoğlu and Sultanahmet, is when you really get hit by exactly where you are. Right when you get across the bridge, there's a nice little cafe right in the center of the first intersection where you can sit outside, have a cup of local chai, and soak it all in.

A sunset romance

This was an accidental photo. It was meant to be a video, but I captured this instead, and I was pleasantly surprised.

The Galata Bridge is one of the must-see if you go a few days visit to Istanbul, towers over the Golden Horn and joins Karaköy and Eminönü and offers some of the best views of the city, since he can see the Mosque New, Galata Tower, Topkapi Palace in the distance, the minarets of the mosque of Suleiman. It is located very near the Eminonu port, where boats depart to different parts of the city, and the ships that ply the Bosphorus (I recommend it), very close to the Spice Bazaar and the Grand Bazaar and near Metro stop: Eminonu. It's a great place to enjoy the city and especially lose sight in the water surrounding the city. The best time is at dusk, since e suno contemplate the points where the best sunsets in Istanbul, when the sky turns pink and purple and charge water the color of fire. Always day, evening and night is full of fishermen across your bridge. Under are a large number of attractive modern restaurants, that I recommend, because although at first glance seem a bargain for their offers quality leaves much to be desired and become the worst restaurants in town, that if with a unsurpassed views. It's best to go at different times over this bridge to discover how daylight is changing the landscape that can be seen from him and another view, apart from the sunset, we walk at night by seeing all the city lights, you recommend

El Puente Galata es uno de los lugares que hay que ver si vas unos días de visita a Estambul, se alza sobre el Cuerno de Oro y une Karaköy y Eminönü y ofrece algunas de las mejores vistas de la ciudad, desde él puedes contemplar la Mezquita Nueva, la Torre Galata, el palacio Topkapi a lo lejos,los alminares de la mezquita de Suleiman.

Está situada muy cerca del puerto de Eminonu, donde parten los barcos a diferentes partes de la ciudad, así como los barcos que surcan el estrecho del Bósforo( os los recomiendo), muy próximo al Bazar de las especias y al Gran Bazar y junto a una parada de metro: Eminonu.

Es un buen lugar para contemplar la ciudad y sobre todo perder la vista en el agua que rodea a la ciudad. El mejor momento es al atardecer, ya que e suno de los puntos donde contemplar los mejores atardeceres de Estambul, cuando el cielo se vuelve rosa y morado y las aguas cobran el color del fuego.

Siempre día, tarde y noche esta repleto de pescadores a lo largo y ancho de su puente. Bajo el se encuentran un gran número de atractivos restaurantes modernos, que no os recomiendo, ya que aunque a primera vista parezcan una ganga por sus ofertas la calidad deja mucho que desear y se convierten en los peores restaurantes de la ciudad, eso si con unas vistas insuperables.

Lo mejor es pasar a diferentes horas por este puente para descubrir como la luz del día va cambiando el paisaje que se puede contemplar desde él y otra visión, aparte de la del atardecer, es pasear de noche por el viendo toda la ciudad iluminada, os lo recomiendo

The sun sets on Istanbul, seagulls make a racket of hell while we cross the oldest bridge in the city for the umpteenth time, the Galata Bridge. We do not get tired, because the bridge itself is a living area and attraction. THERE are fishermen on the bridge, despite the passage of vessels below that bring the food to the city and bring oil from the Black Sea to Europe, trying to catch small fish, there stands food that sell the same fish grilled with a drop of lemon and coriander, musicians, came for a room, cartoonists, and bystanders, curious, which also contribute al'animation bridge. At the lower level, there are a little more formal restaurants, hawkers of fake jewelry, fake designer clothes and even fake cigarettes. Gathers Istanbul's Galata, cosmopolitan and traditional times, a real focus on a few hundred meters. The current bridge dates only from 1994, replacing the old iron structure which was in 1910, following three other bridges. The bridge was designed so that the ferries can pass below without problems and water currents from the Golden Horn are not too polluted. Finally, the bridge is the bridge between Europe and Asia, as the city is built on two continents.

Le soleil se couche sur Istanbul, les mouettes font un boucan d´enfer pendant que l´on traverse le plus vieux pont de la ville pour la énième fois, le pont de Galata. On ne s´en lasse pas, car le pont en lui-même est une zone de vie et d´attraction. IL y a les pêcheurs, sur le pont, qui malgré le passage des cargos en dessous, qui apportent les vivres de la ville et rapportent du pétrole de la mer noire vers l´Europe, tentent d´attraper de petits poissons, il y a les stands de nourriture qui vendent les mêmes poissons grillés avec une goutte de citron et de la coriandre, les musiciens, venus chercher une pièce, les caricaturistes, et les passants, les curieux, qui contribuent également a l´animation du pont.

Au niveau inférieur, il y a des restaurants un peu plus formels, des vendeurs ambulants de faux bijoux, faux vêtements de marques et même fausses cigarettes. Le Galata rassemble les stambouliotes, cosmopolites et a la fois traditionnel, un vrai concentré sur quelques centaines de mètres.

Le pont actuel date seulement de 1994, remplaçant l´ancienne structure de fer qui était la depuis 1910, succédant a trois autres ponts. Le pont a été pensé pour que les ferrys puissent passer dessous sans problèmes et que les courants d´eau en provenance de la Corne d´Or ne soient pas trop pollués. Enfin, le pont est le trait d´union entre l´Europe et l´Asie, car la ville est construite sur deux continents.

If there is a magical and evocative place in Istanbul Galata Bridge that is. And if there is something unique are its fishermen. Day and night, tireless, always with his smile and his bucket of fresh fish under your feet, it seems that fishermen do not sleep. A row of them meanders the bridge, a little away their hooks when ships pass through the Golden Horn. It gets dark and begin to light their campfires. It"s time to take tomatoes, asparagus, grilled vegetables with these fish. The best will be to sell at the food stalls outside near the ferry stations. If there is magic in the world, it is in Istanbul. If there is a metaphor for what it means to me this city, it would be the proud fishermen Galata at midnight. Late afternoon in Istanbul, gulls screech no longer crossed for the fourth time while the oldest bridge in Istanbul: Galata. We are not tired, any excuse to go the stalls and restaurants of the lower level and up some stairs and cross the Golden Horn where fishermen expect. peddlers of fake watches, delicious grilled asparagus, roasted young making campfires where fish and drink a beer Efes very fresh. Galata is the most beautiful summary of Istanbul, a whole world cosomovisión in these few hundred meters. The current data Galata bridge 1994 only substituting the old iron structure 1910, which in turn replaced three bridges. The bridge is now designed so that ferries towards Eyüp can cross it without problems and the current water flow and the Golden Horn no recontamination. For me, the most authentic place around Sultanahmet.

Si hay un lugar mágico y evocador en Estambul ése es el Puente Gálata. Y si hay algo único son sus pescadores. Día y noche, incansables, siempre con su sonrisa y su cubo de peces frescos bajo sus pies, parece que los pescadores no duermen. Una fila de ellos serpentea el puente, apartan un poco sus anzuelos cuando los barcos pasan por el Cuerno de Oro. Se hace de noche y empiezan a encender sus hogueras. Es el momento de tomar tomates, espárragos, verduras a la plancha con esos peces. Los mejores serán para venderlos en los puestos de comida al aire libre cercanos a las estaciones de los ferrys.

Si hay magia en el mundo, está en Estambul. Si hay una metáfora de lo que significa para mí esta ciudad, sería sus orgullosos pescadores de Gálata a media noche.

Atardece en Estambul, las gaviotas no dejan de chillar mientras atravesamos por cuarta vez el puente más antiguo de Estambul: el Gálata. No nos cansamos, cualquier excusa es buena para recorrer los puestos y los restaurantes del nivel inferior y subir algunas escaleras y atravesar el Cuerno de Oro por donde esperan los pescadores. Vendedores ambulantes de relojes falsos, deliciosos espárragos a la plancha, jóvenes haciendo fogatas donde asan los pescados y beben una cerveza Efes bien fresca. El Gálata es el más bello resumen de Estambul, toda una cosomovisión del mundo en estos pocos cientos de metros.

El puente Gálata actual data tan sólo de 1994, sustituyendo la antigua estructura de hierro de 1910, que a su vez reemplazó a otros tres puentes. El de ahora es un puente pensado para que los ferries en dirección a Eyüp puedan atravesarlo sin problemas y para que la corriente de agua fluya y el Cuerno de Oro no vuelva a contaminarse.

Para mí, el lugar más auténtico de todo Sultanahmet.

On the other end of the city

It's a huge bridge that connects Sultanahmet, old Istanbul, Istanbul Modern, Beyoglu district. It allows you to admire the view of the Mosques, the Bosphorus and take stock of the city. The Galata Bridge is also that there are below the Bridge: bars and restaurants on both sides of the bridge with a view of the river and the city. What is amusing is the number of fishermen trying their luck, and it works! They are very numerous, often tangling their lines but fish small fish, sometimes large, and throughout the day.

D'un bout à l'autre de la ville

C’est un immense pont qui relie Sultanahmet, le vieil Istanbul, à l’Istanbul Moderne, le quartier de Beyoglu. Il permet d’admirer la vue sur les Mosquées, sur le Bosphore et de prendre la mesure de la ville.
Le Pont Galata c’est aussi ce qu’il y a en dessous du Pont : des bars et des restos des deux côtés du Pont avec la vue sur le fleuve et la ville. Ce qui est amusant c’est le nombre de pêcheurs qui tentent leur chance, et ça marche ! Ils sont très nombreux, emmelent souvent leurs lignes mais pêchent de petits poissons, parfois des gros, et ce tout au long de la journée.

Is a real sight to see both fond of fishing above the Galata Bridge to catch some fish and then sell them behind him. The bridge is one that joins the edge of the old town with Ottoman and Genoese today crosses the tram that goes to the area Kabatas. Among the higher road and the bottom of the bridge there are many restaurants serving very tasty fish dishes and a very affordable price.

Es un verdadero espectáculo ver a tanto aficionado a la pesca situado sobre el Puente de Gálata para capturar algunos peces y ponerlos a la venta detrás suyo. El puente es uno de los que une la orilla de la antigua ciudad genovesa con la otomana y hoy día cruza por el el tranvía que va hasta la zona de Kabatas. Entre la calzada superior y la parte inferior del puente se encuentran numerosos restaurantes que sirven platos de pescado muy sabrosos y a un precio muy asequible.

Across the Golden Horn can find one of the most iconic bridges in Istanbul.

Among fishermen

Invariably in the busy hours of the day, the Galata Bridge on the Golden Horn is one of the symbols of Istanbul. The profile of the bridge also belong the tens, perhaps hundreds of fishermen crowded along the parapets. Seeing the dark and murky waters flowing under the bridge, I would not dare to try fishing for small fish, to tell the truth ...

Fra i pescatori

Immancabilmente trafficatissimo nelle ore del giorno, il ponte di Galata sul Corno d'oro è uno dei simboli di Istanbul. Del profilo del ponte fanno parte anche le decine, forse centinaia di pescatori affollati lungo i parapetti. Vedendo le acque scure e torbide che scorrono sotto il ponte non mi azzarderei ad assaggiare i piccoli pesci che pescano, a dire il vero...

The sun sets over the Galata Bridge and the tram. Away from the heat of the afternoon, traders and workers agitate around peaceful fishermen will start the night and wakes Istanbul. The naval base Eminönü with its smells of fried fish is not very popular with tourists (especially at this time of day) but is nevertheless a fantastic way to capture the atmosphere of the city at a rate so special.

Le soleil se couche sur le pont de Galata et son tramway.
Loin de la chaleur de l'après midi, commerçants et travailleurs s'agitent autour de paisibles pêcheurs : La nuit va commencer et Istanbul se réveille.
La base maritime d'Eminönü avec ses odeurs de poisson fri n'est pas très prisée des touristes (surtout à cette heure de la journée) mais est pourtant un moyen fantastique de saisir l'atmosphère de cette ville au rythme si particulier.

Cold december in istanbul.

Bitter cold December in Istanbul. Legs go out from one end to the city. Fishy, ​​still weighers reeds that crowd on the bridge, and galleys of the ships that prepare freshly caught. First snowflakes in the face. Frozen hands holding the camera. Night. Noise. Light. Color. The essence of a lively city.

Frío diciembre en estambul.

Frío intenso de diciembre en Estambul. Piernas agotadas de recorrer de punta a punta la ciudad. Olor a pescado, todavía en las cañas de los pesadores que se agolpan en el puente, y en las cocinas de los barcos que los preparan recién sacados. Primeros copos de nieve en la cara. Manos congeladas sosteniendo la cámara. Noche. Ruido. Luz. Color. La esencia de una ciudad muy viva.
