The middle point of the 19-meter-long street [1.400] is considered to be the place where Yeniçarşı Street, passing next to Galatasaray High School, cuts the street and where the 1th Year Monument is located. It forms the main axis of Beyoğlu district with Tarlabaşı Boulevard that lies parallel to it. İstiklal Street, which is 50 meters high on average, administratively covers 74 different neighborhoods.
By continuing past Istiklal Caddesi and the environment to remain positive and negative characteristics together with the also bears the distinction of being the most cosmopolitan regions of Turkey exception. Istiklal Street, which is an indispensable place to visit for foreign and domestic visitors coming to Istanbul, is always crowded almost every hour of the day, except for hours that can be counted towards morning. From world-famous brands to passages selling cheap clothes, the street today is largely like a clothing store complex in terms of shopping. Clothes, underwear, accessories, jewelry, shoe-bag shops make up about half of the shopping places on the street. The rest are banks and restaurants ranging from fast food buffets appealing to almost every palate and budget, to global restaurant chains, to traditional flavors such as fish restaurants, custard shops, desserts and pastry shops. For night outs, it has an enormous range from taverns to folk songs, from fasıl venues to rock bars, from strip clubs to gay bars. The street is also home to many cultural centers such as theaters, cinemas, bookstores and art galleries.
