Your guide to real estate in Istanbul Zeytinburnu, Let us help you to find your best property in Turkey.
This is another working-class section of Istanbul that offers some great real estate to interested buyers. Located on the European side of the city, Zeytinburnu is just outside the walls of the old city and on the shore of the Marmara Sea. In short, the surroundings are beautiful, and it’s no wonder that roughly 300,000 people have chosen to call this area of Istanbul their home. The district is made up of several distinct neighborhoods, each with its own sense of community. Residents here enjoy great schools, entertainment, and shopping options. Getting to and from work is not a problem either, given the great transportation options that run through the area.
This district on the shores of the Marmara Sea was a fortress during the Byzantine era. Zeytinburnu’s flag features an olive branch, the symbol of its name which in Turkish means “Cape of the Olive Trees”. During the 19th Century, it developed into a small industrial town that specialized in the production of fine leather goods. As Anatolian migrants settled the area in increasing numbers over the last half of the 20th Century, the face of the district changed considerably. Shanty towns sprang up to house laborers who lived above hundreds of small industrial workshops. Concrete apartment blocks began to make an appearance in the 1970s, with little infrastructure and no long-term vision.
