It’s a port located between the bays. Maiden’s Tower is the most beautiful and romantic place in Istanbul.

Maidens Tower, Istanbul Reviews
This is my favourite sight in Istanbul. It’s beauty is tremendous and watching it from the Asian side of Istanbul is so serene and peaceful. To get there you take a cute little boat from Uskudar which takes you onto the little island of the tower in the middle of the Bosphorous. From the tower you can get an amazing 360 degree view of Istanbul whilst enjoying nice cuisine at the restaurant in the tower. There is also an opportunity to dress up as an ottoman sultan and get to learn some history and the myths regarding this tower. The tower it self is a gorgeous piece of architecture! This is not to be missed in Istanbul!
The island is only 200m from Asia and 1255m2 in size! In 110BC the first building for defense and commerce was built, know as Arcla ( small castle). The short boat trip to the island departs every approximately 30min. The island and tower has been well restored and is worth the Tl 20 fee for the visit. We did not dine at the restaurant but enjoyed the walk up the stairs to the viewing deck. Also the island’s history and fascinating legends displayed on the stairs landings made interesting reading. There is a small souvenir shop and a studio for photos in traditional or theme costumes. The flag flying on the tower flagpole is 5m2 and is replaced every 15 days !
The most romantic dinner place one can go. Delicious set menu, amazing atmosphere. The whole experience from booking to getting on the boat that takes you there, the live music with selected songs that all go with the story of the princess and her lost love and sacrifice. The museum and architecture of the place are not to be missed. Our bight was an amazing one never to be forgotten. 11/05/2018 thank you for being perfect.
You can witness some of the most spectacular views from this place, it was an absolute nightmare trying to find out how to reach maiden tower or Kiz kulesi but allow me to simplify it for you. If you would like to visit Maiden tower go to Salacak near Uskudar port it's about 10/15 minutes from uskudar and directly opposite the maiden tower
Mühtaşem bir yer mutlaka gizmelisiniz. It is great view you had better to go there
