Catalca Train Station

Çatalca Train Station, which has survived since the first period of its construction, arouses admiration with the details in its architecture. Çatalca Train Station, which has been carefully preserved for years, is a very special and historical place that has witnessed many separations, joys and longing. It is even among the stops of the Eastern Express. This line is the line that connects many countries.

The station, which partners with artists, politicians and many other famous figures on their journey, has a visually impressive structure. For this reason, filmmakers and photographers give great importance to this place and consider it as a working area. One of the interesting features of this place is that it is the station Abdulmecit used while going into exile in Switzerland. His friends put him here instead of Sirkeci to prevent chaos. In fact, documents related to this journey were shared with the public recently. Many more recent frames like this have been experienced here.

The history of Çatalca Train Station, which is as sad as it arouses, goes back to the 1800s. In the West, very important developments took place in the railroad area towards the mid-1800s. The Ottoman Empire did not remain indifferent to these developments for that period. Especially during the Tanzimat period, the positive progress in Ottoman and Western relations paves the way for such interactions. The initiatives that started with the Alexandria-Cairo line continue with Izmir, Aydin and Varna. One of the stations that emerged at the end of this process is the Çatalca Train Station.

As of today, the station is far from its old and glorious days. Recently, some work has been done regarding the repair and landscaping of this place. Although it is not an active station, it maintains its existence in terms of touristic value.
