Reviews of Galata Bridge • 2
It’s a huge bridge that has restaurants bellow on both ends. When you get to the middle of the bridge the sights to both sides are breathtaking, especially at sunset. And bellow you in the sea, a million tour boats that cruise the Bosphorus. What also gives this bridge it’s character is the large number of fishermen from all ages lined across the railings shouting and chatting.
After the tour of the museum, it will be almost time for lunch. So head to the much heard of Historic Eminonu’s Fish-Bread. This is adjacent to Galata Bridge and near the New Mosque. At the stall, the fish (mackerel) is directly grilled on the boat and then put in a half-bread together with some salad and onions. Simple food, simply delightful taste.
