Bagdat Street in Istanbul
The area around Bağdat Caddesi, which stretches for 14km on Istanbul’s Anatolian side, has been an upmarket residential district since its wooden chalet mansions were built in the late 19th century. Today, many of these grand houses still survive as the homes of some of the world’s most exclusive and luxurious brands.
Much of Bağdat Caddesi’s shopping area is concentrated along a wide, tree-lined section between Bostancı and Kızıltoprak, which is often busy with shoppers seven days a week.
Bağdat Caddesi is the place to spend a day strolling along and shopping in the stores of some of the best global brands
