This website offers its visitors an opportunity to get acquainted with Istanbul – whether they be its resident or a tourist. As we go to school or to work or visit a place as a tourist, we are made to live and experience it in a constant state of present rendered devoid of history.

With this guide, we wish to throw light on the suppressed histories of the Ottoman era and Republican Turkey by looking at Istanbul in particular.

These are mostly histories of appropriation and violation, injustice and power, but at times also histories of struggle…

Our purpose, with this ‘unofficial’ Istanbul tour from Taksim Square to Sultanahmet Square covering 17 places, squares and buildings, is, in a sense, to provide an account of the ‘unofficial’ history of the city itself.

We hope you enjoy the ride…
