Photographer's Note

Das Café Markiz in der Istiklal Cad. bezaubert mit seinem Jugendstil-Ambiente, zwei riesigen Fliesenbildern, und die Profiterole-Torte, die ich gegessen habe, kann ich auch empfehlen. Das Lokal heißt jetzt "yemek kolubü", und der untenstehende, etwas spitze Kommentar eines Bloggers darf ruhig ignoriert werden.


Innes Welbourne:
"Turks have an uneasy relationship with history. Perhaps that explains Café Markiz in Istanbul’s old European district of Pera. Long famous for its early 20th century art deco interior, it has been painstakingly restored to the original – except for the LCD televisions bolted to the windows, stridently bombarding passers-by on the famous pedestrian high street, Istiklal Caddesi, with hamburger specials aimed at attracting a high turnover of hungry tourists. While Markiz’s restored interior is otherwise unblemished, the spirit of the people that created it has departed. The cafe shares an entrance with an electronics superstore so they probably got a good deal on the enormous LCD screens. But as for recreating a romantic experience of yesteryear, not quite!"
