  • BEYOGLU This section of the city, which was not a residential area during the byzantine era, was named as Peran Vineyards originating from “Pera” meaning the opposite shore or beyond. On the other hand Turks named Pera as “Beyoglu” covering a wider area than before. There are many rumors regarding how the name Beyoglu has come about. According to one of these, the name originates from the fact that Aleksios Komnenos, one of the princes of Pontus Empire, took up residence here after he was converted to Islam during the reign of Fatih the Conqueror. According to another story, instead of a Pontus Prince, Luigi Giritti, the son of Andre Giritti, Ambassador to Venice, took up residence in the area during the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent. This person, who was called Squire’s Son (Bey Oglu) by Turks, was born when the ambassador married a Greek woman. Beyoglu, with its fabric that extends from Karakoy to Taksim covering a wealth of historical, architectural and artistic values, is a great center of business, entertainment and culture for the surrounding districts and Istanbul as well.
