One of the best areas in the Europe side of Istanbul – Kağıthane

Kağıthane is one of the 39 districts of Istanbul, which is the most important city in Turkey and is considered one of the important points of the world with its place on the globe. Kağıthane is located on the European side of the Bosphorus, west of the Bosphorus, which is one of the important waterways of the earth connecting the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara and separating the Asian and European continents.

Kağıthane, one of the last settlements of Istanbul, and the surrounding neighborhoods were neighborhoods of the Şişli District until 1987. Kağıthane was separated from Şişli in 1987 and made a district. Kağıthane district area is administratively surrounded by Ayazağa, which is connected to Şişli from the north, and Şişli from the south and southeast. The district borders the districts of Beşiktaş in the northeast, Beyoğlu in the southwest, and Eyüp in the west and northwest.

In terms of surface area, it is one of the seven smallest districts of Istanbul with Adalar, Bayrampaşa, Beyoğlu, Güngören, and Zeytinburnu. The territory of Kağıthane district covers a total area of 16 km2.

The first of the highways crossing the Bosphorus with the 15 Temmuz Şehitler and Fatih Sultan Mehmet bridges pass through the south of the district and the second pass through the north. Of these, the 01 (E5) Highway forms the border with the town of Şişli in the south. The 02 (TEM) Highway follows the east-west direction in the northern part of the Kağıthane District. Another highway between Okmeydanı and Hasdal junctions connects the 01 and 02 highways.

Kağıthane has become a preferred district with the change and transformation it has experienced in the last 13 years. It is possible to observe this from rapidly increasing population statistics.
