Dünyanın en eski yerleşim merkezlerinden biri olan Haliç, İstanbul’un İç limanıdır.

Golden Horn

One of the oldest residential centers in the world, the Golden Horn is the inner harbor of Istanbul. This bay, called Khrysokeras (Golden Horn) in the time of the Byzantines, was also called Halic-i Konstantiniye (Golden Horn of Konstantiniye) during the Ottoman period. The Golden Horn stretches for 8 km from the aforementioned two river junctions between Sarayburnu and Tophane.

Haliç continues to be known as the “Golden Horn” by Europeans, and the place of origin of this name is based on a Greek legend. The legend begins with the fact that the mother goddess Hera, having learned that her husband Zeus is in love with the beautiful Io, turns Io into a horned cow and haunts a fly on her head. Io, who hit her head to the right and left while running away from the fly, separates the pieces of land and creates deep rifters, and one of these rifters is the Golden Horn. Then Io finally goes a shore and gives birth to a daughter, whom she names Keroessa. When the girl’s name turns into “keros”, that is, “horn” over time, this name is given to the area that we know as the Golden Horn by Keroessa’s son Byzas. The Golden Horn, who is said to be a place where the streets are paved with gold due to its productivity, has come to the present day as the “Golden Horn” with the addition of “Gold” by the Westerners.
