Use the ferry from besiktas to Haydarpasha or vice versa, to find the best excuse to enter there. No entrance fee but this citadel like train station is magnificent. Shows how seriously they took public transportation then. This is actually a terminal station for the iron roads from Istanbul to Middle east. The trains still works and you can take... More

Currently station does not work and there are discussions to convert train station either to mall or hotel. It is still possible to visit station and roam around inside but it is forbidden to enter area where trains and cars stands. There is lovely cafe near sea.

This historical train station was build by Germans in 1908. Train has been shut down in June 2013 but you can still visit the building and the greek restaurant in side it. Sunset is great from it's garden.

I have always been attracted by old train stations, maybe this is why I love this place. It is the first thing you see in Kadikoy when coming with the boat. Except from the great architecture, you can imagine for a while how this area was a couple of hundred years ago and the importance of this building. Do visit... More

The building has a faboulous architecture and looks almost like a museum now. It worth a visit to inspect the building, read the history on the wall and to relax with a cold drink or tea on the seaside front of the building. The location is close to the ferries landing from the Eurpoean side of Bosporous - 10 minutes... More

The train station offers some nice architectural but has little to see. it is illuminated at night. It is possible to visit it and then eat dinner in the restaurant right in the station.or go to the fish market not far away to eat. There are no longer any passenger rail services in this station.

We boarded the ferry with the kids for a very cheap price. They served hot tea and fresh juice for a very small fee on the ferry. The building is ancient and beautiful. It's a quick way to say you've been to Asia and fun for the whole family.

It was one of the most important public transportation way in the anatolian side of İstanbul.It is very quiet now as the train services have been stopped due to installation and renovation of new Marmaray.Will be back to service again in a period of 12-18 months fm now on.

This place is a royal station, with amazing architecture, beautiful view of see, colorful inside design and many more. If you go to Asian part you should visit this place it will just take about half an hour and it definitely worth it.
