Additional Information


Bazaar means the market, and Turkish is the "covered market." The Grand Bazaar has been the city centre of Istanbul for centuries. The Grand Bazaar is very close to Istanbul University and the Blue Mosque, and its entrance is so ordinary that it is easy for visitors to miss it. The large-scale Grand Bazaar adopts a fully enclosed design that receives visitors from all over the world every day. People have installed a set of lockable doors and fences for the market, so that after a day of trading, the market can be safely closed.
