Turkey // Istanbul and around //

The Golden Horn

Northwest of Beyoğlu, along the newly spruced-up north shore of the once heavily polluted Golden Horn, three sights are well worth a look, especially if you’re fed up with historic buildings and/or have kids in tow: the Rahmi M. Koç Industrial Museum, Turkey’s landmark buildings done to scale at Miniatürk, and the trendy exhibition centre of Santralistanbul, in a refurbished power station.
