Istanbul Buyukcekmece Apartments


Laying on the shore of the Buyukcekmece Lake, this district of Istanbul combines Ottoman history with modern architecture and is worth a visit.   

After a stroll on the Sultan Suleyman Bridge (also called the Buyukcekmece Bridge) by the world-known Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan, you arrive at more of the impressive historical buildings. The Sultan Suleyman Caravanserai, the Sultan Suleyman Fontain, which is still in use today, and the Sokollu Mehmed Paşa Mosque, all works by Mimar Sinan as well, are in this area.

The Sultan Suleyman Bridge, or also called Mimar Sinan Bridge, is 636 meters and connects both sides of the Buyukcekmece Lake. It is said that Mimar Sinan called this bridge "his masterpiece among his buildings."

The caravanserai is part of the Büyükçekmece Menzil Külliyesi. Kulliye was by the Ottomans a complex of religious and social buildings like madrasa, Dar al-Shifa, Turkish bath, etc. around a central mosque. The caravanserai is also called Kurşunlu Han (Leaded Han) because its roof was covered with lead originally.

The Sokollu Mehmed Pasa Mosque is situated close to the caravanserai. It is unique because of its minaret being carved from a single piece of stone, making it one of the only two minarets of this kind in the whole world.

Looking at the modern buildings in Buyukcekmece, the award-winning Sancaklar Mosque is a must-see. This underground mosque has a modern design and has been awarded the best design internationally.

Besides sight-seeing in Buyukcekmece, many new apartments are being developed in the area, with impressive architectural designs and full services with indoor- and outdoor pools, reception, fitness, SPA, and many more. The mix of modern and historical makes this area a sought-after location to live in Istanbul. The Marmara park shopping center can be a full day-out in Istanbul with its 190 shops and 36 restaurants and a cinema.

Here're some of the private schools located in Buyukcekmece:
