The Island of Charm

The Princes Islands off the coast of Istanbul are a sure delight for people looking for an off-the-beaten track activity. Accessibly daily within only a couple of hours at most, the Princes Islands are nine islands, each with its unique charm. Closed to traffic, the islands offer views on beautiful Istanbul-style house, churches, scenery and horse-carriageo r bicycle rides. With a heavy crowd during summer, the islands offer a much more relaxed atmosphere during the fall when the weather permits.

Büyükada (Big Island), the most popular of the nine, is well-known for its beautiful church Hagia Yorgi, dating back to the 6th century.
