A Local’s Guide to Yeldeğirmeni

yeldegirmeni cover

A very genuine and historical part of İstanbul: Yeldeğirmeni. This neighbourhood has been going through a serious identity alteration recently. As the settlement’s history starts from the geological time, it is obvious that there has been a lot of evolution. Today it is still possible to see the vestiges of those times. With the great aggregation of cultures and the recent popularity, the neighbourhood is developing more composite identity.
