Beneath this narrow street runs the Tünel underground funicular railway, from below the building on the right to its lower terminus on Tersane Caddesi near the Galata Bridge. The railway, which opened in 1875, transports 15000 people each day on its two cars.
View towards İlk Belediye Caddesi, beyond which is the sunlit headquarters building of the Beyoğlu Municipality.
In the distance a glimpse of the Golden Horn.
