Гранд базар Стамбула: Па-першае гандлёвы цэнтр у свеце
The Grand Bazaar (or “Kapalı Çarşı” in Turkish), means “covered bazaar". It has humble beginnings as a small masonry market enclosure called a “bedesten,” built in 1455 during the reign of Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror. Located in the heart of the old city, Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar slowly grew as neighbouring shopkeepers attached their shops to the growing covered market: a brilliant idea to secure the market stall and facilitate shopping in any weather, year-round. Turkey’s Grand Bazaar was then further enlarged during the time of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent in the early 16th Century, and then was repaired in 1894 after a major earthquake shook the city. Today, the Grand Bazaar is one of the largest covered markets in the world, sprawling over 58 covered streets, and boasting over 4,000 shops, two mosques, two hamams, four fountains, and anywhere from one quarter to half a million visitors, daily.
Start the day off right, with baklava and kave in the spice market (an adjoining open-air market to the sprawling Grand Bazaar). With a good sugar rush, you can hit the streets and wind your way through board-game alley and bridal boutique heaven. There are so many other markets connecting all around the main Bazaar that even finding one of the Grand Bazaar's 22 front doors, let alone not getting lost inside, can be an adventure. It is quite easy to find a Grand Bazaar map to help you through the maze; but on the other hand, ditching the map (after a quick peruse) can be much more amusing!
Once inside, the vaulted arch of the ceiling, in clean white and red tiles, gives it magnificence and a lovely sound. It's a visual feast, with soaps and beads, spices and glass, rolls of fabrics, tons of brass, rugs, and loads of cheap knock-off brand items. It is very similar to most other bazaars in terms of the specific contents; and not just the size. Beyond the shiny wares, there is a hub of trade, of communication between companies and countries; and the Grand Bazaar is still a force in the Turkish economy for import/export business. Part of the attractive mystique of the Grand Bazaar is the idea of the Grand Bazaar itself. It’s not necessarily what's in it, but what it is.
