    The Underground Cruise Terminal is a First.

    Galataport, as the main port, can serve three ships and fifteen thousand passengers per day. It breaks new ground in the world with a 29 thousand square meter terminal built underground with a special cover system. When there are no ships in the port, the coastline remains accessible by forming a temporary bonded area with the help of a special cover system. As a result, Karakoy’s easily accessible coastline becomes one of the city’s most beautiful walking routes.
