Grand Bazaar, Istanbul

İstanbul - Where to see

The Grand Bazaar (Covered Market) in Istanbul is one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world, with 61 covered streets and over 3,600 shops which attract more than 250,000 visitors daily. In 2014, it was listed No.1 among the world’s most-visited tourist attractions with 91,250,000 annual visitors. The Grand Bazar at Istanbul is often regarded as one of the first shopping malls of the world.

The construction of the future Grand Bazaar’s core started during the winter of 1455/56, shortly after the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople and was part of a broader initiative to stimulate economic prosperity in Istanbul.
