The Princes Islands are a combination of nine islands off the Asian coast of Istanbul, in the Sea of Marmara. Regular or fast passenger ferries operate to the four of these islands from different parts of the city; from Bostanci, Kadikoy and Kartal neighborhoods on the Asian side, from Sirkeci and Kabatas neighborhoods on the European side. Motorists are not permitted on the islands, therefore you have to walk or rent a bicycle or horse-drawn carriage (fayton in Turkish), even a donkey. Many local people in Istanbul own or rent their summer houses, or just go there at the weekends for swimming in the tiny beaches and for picnicking.

When I first heard about Prince Island, I was deeply attracted by this name. The prince and the island, no matter which word they use, are full of infinite imagination, and the brain fills up a beautiful love story. Which girl does not have a dream about the prince? Moreover, this is still a deported prince who has been exiled on the isolated island of the sea, away from home, alone, romantic and sad. It makes people feel like a man, and only wants to hold a sword, wading through the mountains, smashing the thorns, and removing the dragons and dragons, saving the prince in the water and fire, even if the body is broken.
Prince Island is not an island, but an island of nine islands. About 20 kilometers southeast of Istanbul, these islands are like a grain of pearls scattered in the Marmara Sea, the world's smallest sea. The locals call it Adalar, which means the island. Four of the main major islands are Knalada, Burgazada, Heybeliada and Bykada, which are closest to Istanbul. The most suitable for tourism is also the largest Bykada island
The Princes Islands are the back gardens of Istanbul. An hours boat ride will take you to four different islands. Walking here, there is a feeling of chaos into the European town. Not many people have come to Istanbul to understand this route, so enjoy these quiet islands! ##
