Sisli the heart of Istanbul || The Most Important Real Estate Areas in Istanbul
The history of the Şişli region, is full of interesting events. These lands were used for hunting, agriculture and entertainment of the nobility, and during the Ottoman era it became a residential area for the middle class.
The architectural plan of Şişli features wide streets and neat stone buildings with high ceilings. The architecture of the city was greatly influenced by French culture: artistic painting of buildings, iron balconies and elevator shafts in the middle of the staircase became its legacy.
The dominant class that historically inhabited Şişli was merchants. The city was multinational – Greeks, immigrants from the Balkans, Armenians on a pair with the Turks lived here, coexisting in harmony with each other. Many of the Levant merchants who settled in Istanbul wished to live under the rule of the Ottoman Empire.
Şişli is one of the first districts where tram lines were laid, electricity was extended and gasification was carried out. During the time of the Republic, many imposing buildings and wide roads were built here, such as Halaskar Gazi, which passes through Istanbul’s Şişli market, which has survived to this day. It is a bustling bazaar full of high-vaulted shops on either side of the road.

Here, the trade spirit is combined with echoes of ancient history. This is how a rich historical past and a vibrant modernity intertwined in the heart of Istanbul.
