Set in the attractively landscaped campus of Bilgi University, built on reclaimed industrial land at the head of the Golden Horn, Santralistanbul is a striking symbol of the new İstanbul. The major point of interest is the Museum of Energy, housed, appropriately enough, in an old power station. Between 1914 and its closure in 1983, this plant, the Silahtarağa, was the only electricity generating station in İstanbul. The interior is now a successful mix of the carefully preserved innards of the power plant and hi-tech wizardry. Events in the impressive exhibition space to the left of the entrance range from retrospectives of contemporary Turkish art to displays on the headscarf issue. The campus also holds a couple of trendy bars/venues, Otto Santral and Tamirhane, and hosts the annual “One Love” alt-music festival.
