Splendid Sariyer with gorgeous architecture is one of the largest and most preferred spots across Istanbul in terms of investment. Its elegant houses are nicely and carefully located side by side along the seashore neighbored by charming cafes and fine restaurants. Sariyer has a strategic location consisting of several upscale neighborhoods along the Bosphorus strait, from lighthouse-Rumeli and Kilyos to the Tarabya, Yenikoy, and Istinye regions; it spans 161,000 sqm of land with a population of nearly 335,000. Sariyer also has borders with Eyup and Sisli regions.
It is peculiarly situated between the Bosphorus Strait and the Black Sea, at the northern end of the European side and surrounded by other well-known districts such as Beşiktaş, Şişli, and Eyüp. Sariyer, which comes with a lot of historical significance and is known for its Ottoman-styled houses, nature, and mesmerizing scenery, is considered the most affluent district of Istanbul, a preferred destination of Istanbul’s real estate market, high society, and the elite. Its geographical juxtaposition ensures that commuting to other parts of the district, the city center, or the Asian side are made fairly easy, with transportation routes such as the M2 metro line, bus and shuttle services, and readily available sea ferries.
The Belgrad Forest back this wealthy part of Istanbul. Sariyer includes some popular residential areas like Emirgan, Istinye, Tarabya, Yenikoy, Buyukdere, and Bahcekoy. Also, Kilyos, a preferred weekend or summer getaway on the Black Sea Coast, is within the boundaries of Sariyer.
Rumeli Hisari and Rumeli Feneri are the must-see places of interest in Sariyer district.
Also called Roumeli Hissar Castle, this fortress was built under the regime of Fatih Sultan Mehmed to control the Bosphorus. That's why it is also called Boğazkesen Castle, which can be translated as "Strait-Cutter Castle." Today the castle is a museum and hosts many open-air concerts during the summer months.
Rumeli Feneri is a lighthouse that is at the entrance to the Bosphorus from the Black Sea. It is the tallest lighthouse in Turkey, and it is still in use. The French built it during the Crimean War. It is believed that the area the lighthouse stands on has also been mentioned in Greek Mythology. The lighthouse is open for visitors.
