Was ihr unternehmen werdet

This tour is a conversation about issues of contemporary politics and social history of Turkey through a WALK in&around Taksim Square
Istanbul is the Three-Empires Capital, locals say it is "older than History itself", her past merge with legend
Unsurprisingly many are her centers yet during the 20th-century important events of the political history of Turkey happen to take place just in and around Taksim Square, making it the symbolic stage for "performance of Power" in modern Turkey.

We will go through Decadence and End of the Ottoman Empire, Mustafa Kemal and the Struggle for Independence, Ataturk and the Republic, Istanbul's Pogrom, Bloody First May, Gezi Park, Erdogan's Years...
We say "Whatever happens in Turkey happens in Taksim,"
Every single main period of the recent political history of the country seems to inevitably happen or have a symbolic presence in Taksim Square. We will walk and talk through stories and events
Our walk is a conversation, not a lecture, so your questions and opinions will lead it also

I am a teacher and Istanbul lover. Gourmet and traveller myself. I work in university here and run a few homestays

My passion is history, everything is interconnected with it: architechture, politics, but also language, food ...every aspect of culture

Beside this one, I also use to run walking tours in non-touristic attractions of Istanbul. All tours are mainly walking and using public transport, all tours go to the discovery of HIDDEN GEMS OF ISTANBUL, and combine a special interest for food, as well as religion, popular culture, politics, tradition... but obviously also history, art and architecture.
