Haydarpasa Train StationIstanbul, Turkey
4.3 / 15
Haydarpasa Train Station is an elegant Ottoman-era rail station that is currently under restoration. Unfortunately, visitors are unable to enter or get near the station due to extensive archaeological excavations in the surrounding area. It is uncertain whether the station will reopen in the future, but it is a relief that it was not torn down. Despite the restrictions, visitors can still enjoy the station's picturesque views by taking a boat tour. The station is located at Haydarpaşa Harbor, and it features a column dedicated to Abdulhamid II, designed by Italian architect Vallaury. The station holds significant historical importance as it was a major stop on the Berlin-Baghdad Express route. The station's ornate vaulted ceiling, sandstone façade, and clock tower add to its charm. Although the station is currently closed, it is still worth a visit to admire its architectural beauty and have a meal at the nearby Mythos Haydarpasa restaurant. In the past, the station served as the main train station for the Anatolian part of Istanbul, marking the starting point of the railways in Asia. It was a landmark in Istanbul, connecting the Asian coast of the Bosphorus to the European side via ferry. Unfortunately, the station recently suffered a fire while undergoing restoration, leading to debates about its future use as either a station and art & culture center or a hotel. Regardless of its current state, the station holds a special place in the hearts of Istanbul residents who have fond memories of traveling to and from different cities via the trains that passed through Haydarpasa.
