CHURCH SERVICES

One of the most beautiful places to celebrate Christmas is the glamorous, St. Antoine Church in Beyoglu. Another option is the Crimean Memorial Church, a lovely Anglican church hidden behind a veil of thick trees.  

CUPCAKE & COCKTAIL WORKSHOP

Sweets are an indispensable part of New Year time and these sweets contain joy instead of calories! As a collaboration of Santa & the Culinary Arts Academy the most secreted New Year cupcake, ‘cooktail’, and cake recipes are given to sweet-lovers during the festive period.

THE SKY IS THE LIMIT

When the clock hits 00:00, a gigantic visual show will be triggered all over the city. Thousands of fireworks will turn the night into day and welcome the new-born year with sparkling enthusiasm! Make sure to be close to the Bosphorus, preferably in Ortakoy for best views.

MAKE YOUR WISH COME TRUE

An ancient underground water called The Basilica Cistern is the largest of the cisterns found across Istanbul.  Among the ruins you will find two carvings of Medusa’s head used as column bases, as well as a column with tear shaped engravings believed to have the power to make your wishes come true.
