Nostalgic İstiklal Caddesi Tram
In 19th-century Pera (Beyoğlu), a traditional tram trundled along the Grande Rue de Pera (İstiklal Caddesi) for 1.64 km (1 mile) connecting Taksim Square with Galatasaray and Tünel Square (map).
The tram was taken out of service in 1961, replaced by buses.
After İstiklal Caddesi became a pedestrian zone, the tram was restored and revived in 1990.
