A view from the Atatürk ( Unkapanı ) Bridge towards the Beyoğlu shore. The present bridge, completed in 1939, is squeezed between the Haliç shipyard, out of picture to the left, and the Azapkapı Mosque, founded by Grand Vizier Sokollu Mehmet Paşa and built by Sinan in 1577. On the skyline the ever present Galata Tower.
... Most of the buildings to the right of the mosque were demolished to make way for the Golden Horn Metro Bridge, which opened in February 2014.
