5 gorgeous historic apartments in Istanbul

1) Kamondo Apartment

The Sephardic Jewish Kamondo family of financiers and philanthropists are responsible for three notable structures: the Kamondo Stairs, Palace and this beautiful apartment near the Galata Tower. Built in the 19th century, the apartment allowed Avram Kamondo to easily stroll to his own bank on Bankalar Caddesi.
