Kabataş Docks Closed Until 2018!
Istanbul‘s Kabataş ferry docks, on the European shoreof the Bosphorus north of Karaköy and south of Dolmabahçe Palace (map) were closed on August 11, 2016 in order to permit construction of a new transport transfer station project that will change the entire area. Construction may not be finished until 2018 or later.
So: no ferryboats from Kabataş until 2018!
