There is so many history. You have to go there because you will see a lot of old things. Pictures and interesting objects from the past.

It is one of my favourite Museum with its great selections of temporary exhibitions. They always find the great things matching with the soul of the city and Pera... Building itself is gorgeous anyway...

Visited Pera Museum last week. Temporary modern exibition was not so interesting ( 5th and 4th floor) but the rest of museum is very nice and interesting. I went on Friday evening when entrance is free from 18h00. The café is also nice and cosy.

Well, I believe Kiraç Family gave an excellent museum to Istanbul with Pera Museum. We visited two new exhibitions in the museum and both were excellent. Had a nice afternoon coffee in the museum's grouna level Cafe, as well.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
