Edirnekapi district, Itsanbul
In old times even the city guards were afraid to go in this district of Istanbul. If the authorities had to go to Edirnekapi, they formed an expedition with heavily armed soldiers. They had weighty arguments to do this! After all, Edirnekapi housed the two freedom-loving and proud peoples - Gypsies and Kurds. Fierce, terse, living under the laws of blood revenge, they still stand out against the very peace-loving Turks. Edirnekapi is a stronghold of the Gypsies and Kurds. Similar to favelas of Rio de Janeiro, it gives the tourists the opportunity to look at the seamy side of Istanbul. You'll have such opportunity too. Of course, this is an absolutely safe trip: you will see Edirnekapi from the windows of a well-protected bus. Reliable guarding, local guide and professional driver - all this will make your trip to Edirnekapi as safe as seeing a shark in a special cage for scuba divers.
