On and Above Bankalar Caddesi

Soon after I arrived in Istanbul, Ville had a press conference in one of the spectacular bank buildings on Bankalar Caddesi. This street which has all the former bank headquarters on it was built like a row of stone safes in order to inspire a sense of security in bank customers. I felt for a moment that I could be skipping after the banker Dad in Mary Poppins! Today, we were lucky enough to view this street from a roof top terrace. Looking down we could see similar terraces with their green bushes on top of the bank buildings. In one direction was Galata Tower and in the other the historic peninsula. When we got down to the street itself, we found that there was filming taking place, and in a complete bonus for Anton the particular scene involved lots of vintage cars.
