A major shopping location where you can hunt for fairly priced souvenirs, smashing golden jewelry or clothes. Merchants have been gathering here with their goods and starting the day with a cup of Turkish tea since the 15th century.
The market was divided into different sections and the merchants with certain types of goods had to sell their products only in the sections devoted to it. Therefore, there were roads with shoes only, alleys where you could buy herbs and also a special place for a book market and a flea market. This division slowly disappeared, however, the names of the streets describing the products sold there remain.
