The street ends (or begins if we follow the one-way logic) by the square

with a bull sculpture, which is always crowded. If you are here in the

cool chestnut season the smell will make you feel this special

atmosphere and the flavor will complete the charm. In summer look for

carts with corn, freshly boiled or charcoal grilled.

 Bull Statue, Kadıköy in Istanbul

Bull Statue in Kadıköy is one of the symbols of the Asian side of

Istanbul. It is located in Kadıköy Altıyol (Six roads in Turkish), in the

middle of an intersection that connects six roads –Altıyol– and it makes

the Kadıköy Bull Statue one of the busiest meeting points in Istanbul.

The journey of the Bull Statue in Kadıköy is a very long and interesting

one. The bronze statue was made by famous-French sculptor Isidore

Bonheur in 1864 and erected in a square in the French territory

of Alsace-Lorraine commemorating the French victory against the

Germans. However, several years later Alsace-Lorraine territory was

taken by the Germans in the early 1870s and the statue was moved to

the capital of the German Empire.

During the First World War (1914-1918) the German Empire and

Ottoman Empire were allies and German Kaiser Wilhelm II sent the Bull

Statue to Ottoman general Enver Paşa as a gift in 1917. In 1917, the Bull

Statue was erected to the Yıldız Palace, but after the loss of the First

World War in 1918 Enver Paşa fled both the empire and palace.

Therefore, the statue was abandoned for years. In 1955, the Bull Statue

was moved to the courtyard of Istanbul Hilton Hotel which was the first

modern five-star hotel and decorated Istanbul Hilton Hotel for fifteen


The Bull Statue made it first inter-continental journey in 1970 and it was

brought to Kadıköy and decorated the former Kadıköy Municipality

Building for two decades. Finally, in 1990 the Bull Statue was erected in

Altıyol Intersection and currently the Kadıköy Bull Statue is one of the

most popular meeting points for people meeting in Kadıköy.
