North of Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge on the Anatolian side along the Bosphorus shore lies Kanlica. An old sleepy village filled with wooden Ottoman style houses and believe it or not, famous for yogurt!
Across from the small ferry port behind the tree lies the go-to cafe for Kanlıca Doğa Yoğurdu – Kanlica’s Natural Yogurt, topped with powdered sugar. (It’s literally a plain natural yogurt made from sheep and cow’s milk topped with powdered sugar).
Located just behind the square across from the ferry pier lies the Gazi Iskender Paşa Mosque, built by Mimar Sinan in 1559–60. The tomb of Iskender Paşa is situated inside the mosque’s yard.
There isn’t much to do outside of the square along the pier, but if you decide to explore and walk around, you’ll be sure to find plenty of yogurt for sale along the main street.
