Why locals love it?
Spanning the Golden Horn, Istanbul’s iconic Galata Bridge is a top spot for fishing. Locals, especially men, like to come here to fish for fun and sometimes to earn money.
Why you should visit it
If you fancy fishing with locals, you can buy a rod and bait from vendors on the bridge. Fishing enthusiasts come here very early in the morning, so follow their lead and arrive early to get a good spot. The bridge also offers nice views of the Old City.
