Zeytinburnu

Due to its proximity to the historical peninsula, Zeytinburnu, which rapidly grew from the 1940s, became a district in 1957, separating from Fatih. It is a small-sized but densely populated district that has recently become one of Istanbul's major transportation hubs. It is bordered by Fatih to the east; Eyüpsultan to the northeast; Bayrampaşa to the north; Esenler to the northwest; Güngören and Bakırköy to the west; and the Marmara Sea to the south.

Zeytinburnu is an important district for those who want to explore Istanbul's historical texture. The historical structures here have a history dating back to the Byzantine period. By visiting these historical sites, you can closely witness Istanbul's rich past and cultural transformation.

In addition, Zeytinburnu, with its wide coastal area, is also an ideal resting route for spending pleasant time by the sea.

The population of our Zeytinburnu district is 280,896.
