This Program is published only for informational purposes. For REGISTRATION, see details within the program description. Thanks for your understanding.


Join us for a special insider's view into multi-cultural Istanbul starting at the grand Ashkenazi Synagogue in Galata, a rare opportunity to visit this lovely building, not open to the public.

Next up Galata's back streets and through a large iron gate there is a secret garden with ducks and many cats. We will visit the Anglican Church (first built in 1858) run by the canton Father Ian. Here there are surprisingly beautiful and witty contemporary icons painted by Scottish Artist Mungo McCosh. One of Istanbul's lesser known gems.
