Camondo Steps

November 21, 2014

The Gaudí-esque neo-baroque and art-nouveau staircase known as Camondo Steps contributes greatly to the chain of contrasts in Istanbul. Built by a prominent 19th-century Jewish Galata banker – Avram Camondo who was an exceptional philanthropist. Worth the walk around the Galata street labyrinth. Istanbul – always full of surpises! I cannot find information who the architect was.

This unique jewel in one of my favourite cities – Istanbul – Çırağan Palace Kempinski (former Ottoman palace,) on the magical Bosphorus feels as it looks. Grand and spectacular!

All Turkish sea resorts share the same lively atmosphere, however, each one is amazing with its own idiosyncrasy. Be it Altinkum [the Golden Sands Beach], the Apollo Temple or the nearby hill village Şirince – a week in Turkey is always a worth experience. Didim – a discovery – both internal and external.
