Bostancı is a neighbourhood of Kadıköy, located on the Anatolian side of Istanbul, Turkey.[1] The neighbourhood fronts the Sea of Marmara and is not far from the Princes' Islands.

Transport[edit]

From the Bostancı shore, five islands; Kınalıada, Burgazada, Heybeliada, Büyükada, and Sivriada can be seen. Bostancı is also a very crowded intersection place for the Asian side of Istanbul with the city buses, sea buses, ships, trains and dolmuş. Bostancı is mostly considered as the beginning point of Bağdat Avenue reaching up to Kadıköy. All the intercity trains going to Anatolia make a stop at the Bostancı railway station, which is situated opposite of the Bostancı pier.
