We ran across this building by chance while taking a short cut through some neighborhoods walking from our hotel to the spice market. Istanbul is like that. If you just start wondering you are likely to come across something amazing. We came upon the grand square in front of the old post office building and off to the side was this remarkable building that while currently dirty and covered with unsightly billboards, it was obviously quite something in its heyday. It just screams Art Nouveau. Of the hundreds of buildings I walked past that day, it was the one I just had to stop and take a picture of. Despite all the other more famous Art Nouveau building in istanbul, if you Google Art Nouveau buildings in Istanbul, pictures of this one will be at the top of the search.
