This fascinating grand architectural monument dates back to 1908, the last years of the Ottoman Empire. The train station was built by the German architects, featuring typical German architectural design and structure. I believe that Sultan Selim was the emperor who took the initiative to...More

Most Characteristic building in Istanbul. It has history and memories in it. Not used as a railway station for a long time. Some exhibitions are organized like books, coffee etc. Should be visited for an event.

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

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...More
