Üsküdar

The district of Üsküdar (on the Asian side) is a popular destination for the locals on Sundays, who flock to its riverside cafés to admire the wonderful views of Topkapi and Sultanahmet. Even though the district is far from being the most Muslim of Istanbul, its mosques are a major tourist magnet. Üsküdar still has its fishermen, whose boats wind their way between container ships and ferries heading to the Princes' Islands.
