Büyükdereis situated where the Bosporus is at its widest (3.3kilometers).
The face of this Istanbul suburb is characterised by wooden houses and villas in the Ottoman style. Located directly on theBosporus on the European side, Büyükdere is pleasantly relaxed and peaceful.
Well worth a visit is the Sadberk-Hanim Museum which has on display the private collection of a Turkish industrial family. The Museum is in a magnificent early-20th century wooden villa in which you can see exceptional collector’s items, from archaeological objects to Ottoman art and Isnik tiles.
