Found out how on a turk. forum...the link is a streetview...follow the Aqueduct to the end of the Street, Ruins and take a left at the corner...You have to climb a bit!

Start: http://harita.yandex.com.tr/?ll=28.9...75413839975523....

Some say it's a bit easier at the other end: http://harita.yandex.com.tr/?ll=28.9...54138281726966

Thanks! According to many sources it is, but in some way you're right, it is impossible to compare cities since each country has different ways to count. Istanbul has counted some parts that could be considered suburbs with some standards. But it is just the title of the thread, it's not important, as the thread is about the photos of the city and not the population.

More pics will come soon.

ANADOLU KAVAGI:

This is a small fishing village and district on the Asian side of Istanbul, on the far northern end of the city where the Bosphorus sound ends in the Black Sea. It is the last station of the wonderufl Bosphorus boat tour. Anadolu Kavagi was the only place we visited on the Asian side (due to fog the ferries to the Asian side was cancelled the day before). We were allowed to stop for less then 2 hours, so we just walked around a bit and visited a fishing restaurant, right next to the Bosphorus.


Anadolu Kavagi on the Asian side, last stop on the Bosphorus tour. This small fishing village was the only thing where we got off, and the only place on the Asian side that we visited (stopping for 1.5 hour in a fishing restaurant).






















Yoros Castle, the ruined Genoese Castle on the Asian side, is situated on the mountain right above Anadolu Kavagi.

See many more pictures from this section:

We returned from Istanbul on Saturday - and I took some inspiration for my visit from your pictures. I've now uploaded my own onto my Turkey thread - link below; if interested.

Had a great time. Istanbul is a truly fabulous city.

fantastic thread

There are also nice beaches for swimming on the northern part of Istanbul ( close to Black Sea ) and in Büyükcekmece ( european part - close to Marmara Sea )

The Prince Islands on the asian side is also a must visit
