The Galata Tower (the "Tower of Christ") is a 9-story medieval stone tower in the Galata/Karaköy quarter of Istanbul, Turkey, just to the north of the Golden Horn's junction with the Bosphorus Strait. Galata Tower's cone-capped cylinder dominates the city's skyline and offers a panoramic vista of Istanbul's historic peninsula and its environs. (Wikipedia)
Previously used as a long-term fire watchtower, the Galata Tower was once named as Galata Fire Tower. Today it is one of the most important structures forming the silhouette of Istanbul. This magnificent tower attracts great attention from both domestic and foreign tourists with its spectacular 360-degree view of Istanbul from the viewing terrace. You can take panoramic photos of Istanbul on the viewing terrace, and if you want to take a tour in the sky of Istanbul, you can try the 4D helicopter simulation.
