Sogukcesme Street

There are nine houses on the street.
The exterior colors try to recreate the picture given in ancient books of travels, or in old photographs. They are rich yellow, pink, and green.
Street is in the middle of the old city.
Right next to the Hagia Sophia

You should tell us what is the name of the street in english - is it "Cold spring (fountain)"? Cesme is a word is romanian language (cismea) borrowed from turk... I'll look for this street. In 3 weeks I WILL BE THERE!!!

It is cold fountain street. There is an old fountain in the street....You can't miss it if you will go to Hagia Sophia.
