The old tramway of Istanbul connects the Taksim square with the historic underground Tünel. With slow speed it drives down the big pedestrian area of the Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Street) in the Beyoglu quarter. Here it passes many stores, bars and restaurants in historic Art Nouveau buildings. As single track there is a passing point in the middle of the lane. Children have lots of fun jumping on and off the moving tramway.
