Beyoğlu

This neighborhood is on the European side of Istanbul. It was separated from Constantinople (a historic and old city) by Golden horn. It was known as a region of Pera. In addition, Pera was an army that faced Constantinople. Until the 20th century, the name of this district was Pera.

The name 'Bey oğlu' was referred to Ottoman Empire. Alvise Gritti was a person who describes by this name. During the reign of Bayezid II, Andrea Gritti was a Venetian and the father of Alvise Gritti. The Name 'Beyoğlu' came from this family. Also, He was elected as Doge of Venice in 1523. Andrea Gritti set up relations in this area (near the present Takim).

In the 16th century, Bailo officially built the "Venetian Palace" and his seat in the south of Beyoğlu. Later in 1861, this place turned into Italian Embassy. During the Republic of Turkey, It was the Italian Consulate when Ankara became the capital of Turkey.

The former neighbors of this district have a different name now, but we mention them with old names; Galata (the medieval Genoese citadel from which Beyoğlu itself originated, which is today known as Karaköy), Tophane, Cihangir, Şişhane, Tepebaşı, Tarlabaşı, Dolapdere, and Kasımpaşa. Additionally, there are significant ways in this neighborhood; Galata Bridge, Atatürk Bridge and, Golden Horn Metro Bridge.
