Considered to  be among the world’s most intelligent animals, crows are cherished and respected in Turkey. While it is still possible to spot a few of them once in a while in Karaköy, some legends claim that a distinct number of species have been around since Sultan Mahmud II (1789–1839), making the oldest crow more than 200 years old. We wish to pay tribute to their homes, where we fellow citizens came in later.
Karaköy is a creative paradise for worldly travelers, native weekenders, adventureres and occasionallly some wise crows too.
