Anadolu Kavağı (Anatolian Land) is in the district Beykoz of Asian Side of Istanbul. It is the last stop on the Bosphorus before the Black Sea and beyond. Therefore, it was used as a shelter for trade ships against storms for centuries, where it is recorded even up to three hundred ships were serviced at a time. However it was a small fishing village until recent years that the income of the village depended mostly on fishing and still today the large part of the small harbor serving for fishing boats. Today it is attracted by locals and tourist with its nice ambiance, green environment and many fish restaurants along the sea shore.
Since it is one of the narrowest stretches of the Bosporus it is strategically important in the history of Roman and Ottoman Empires and even it holds the importance. That’s the reason there is a castle on the hill observing Bosphorus and Black Sea, and today the large part of the district is occupied by a military base.
