“Nice place”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Everyday I pass through it, and mostly I enjoy the sea, it is a nice moment in the day that is full of business and stress

“Best place to view the sunset”
Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

Take a walk on the underside of the bridge at sunset... the most beautiful place, with the gulls and the fishermen and the boats and the sun going down with the minarets in the background...

“Nice historic bridge”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great place for watching the strait, people fishing and having a fish sandwich. Avoid the pricey restaurants there which in my opinion is a rip-off. Eat the fish sandwich place recommended by Rick Steves.

“In the heart of Istanbul there is this bridge! (not the Europe to Asia one)”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Great to visit, FREE, easy to find, the tram goes right across it. Walk the top, walk the bottom stores, or fish from the temporary fishing store set up on it.
