Make sure if it's not under construction as it was during our stay. Not worth to go there then. For sure a nice building but that's all if it's closed. Information doesn't know the train schedule :D

Haydarpasa is in the Asian part of Istanbul and can be reached by ferry from Karakoy pier just over the Galata Bridge. You can use an Istanbulkart for paying the fare. To reach the cemetery, on disembarkation go left through the bus station to the main road. Turn left to cross the railway line. At the second set of traffic... More

Overlooking the harbour on the northern side of the district is the Hydrapaşa Railway terminus which stands sad and forlorn on the harbour front. It was designed and financed by the Germans and completed in 1908. A testimony to the close relationship which had developed between Sultan Hamid II and Kaiser Wilhelm II. In January 2012 the station was closed... More

I had some time to kill before lunch so the driver stopped at this old train station. Originally built by German architects / construction company, the station is now not in use, but its left behind this classic building that appears to have become embroiled in controversy as to what to do with it. During my visit it was the... More

This picturesque old railway terminal is redolent of earlier, more elegant times, when rail travel was the only way to cover long distances across land. This was one of the gateways to the east at the beginning of the 20th century. The decor is strongly reminiscent of the Art Nouveau period. The station buildings suffered a fire some years ago,...

If you take ferry from the European side to Kadiköy you cannot miss this imposing building. It is only a ten minute walk from Kadiköy ferry and although it is now closed is still a wonderful place to wander around. It can seem a little surreal when walking along the abandoned platforms with old rolling stock or in the beautifully... More

The building of this terminal is massive and beautiful, so it's a very photogenic place both from the land and from the sea. Unfortunately, the terminal is now closed for the building of the new YHT ( the new Express ). There is no ferry boat service to and from Haydarpasa anymore, so you have to ride to Kadikoy Pier...

Beautiful architecure. We walked from Uskabar (about 1 hour ) and wandered around. Too bad it is not functional as a station. On the road side, there are many railcars, mostly abandoned. Large open spaces. A steam train is perched on the water side. It is a 5-minute walk to/from the Ferry, so we took the ferry and it is... More
