This is an iconic bascule bridge that is considered to be a paragon of architectural magnificence and beauty. The bridge spans the Golden Horn, which is a protected harbor and inlet of the Bosphorus river.
You can walk across the bridge to have a magnificent view of Istanbul during the night. An abundance of cheap and tasty Turkish street food is sold around the bridge during the night hours as a huge crowd frequents the area during this time. You can even cruise the Golden Horn section by catching the ferry boats over here during night.
This bridge has been featured in many Turkish novels, poetry, and literature due to its impeccable beauty and charm.
