Galataport Istanbul Cruise Ship Terminal (Istanbul, Turkey)
The Galataport, located in Istanbul, is the world’s first underground cruise ship terminal. Set beneath Turkey’s coast, the terminal extends a little over 50 feet below sea level. Developed by BLG Capital, a Bilgili Holding Affiliate and designed by Bruno Ramos of BEA Architects in collaboration with Doğuş Group, the underwater portions of the port were inspired by the iconic cisterns of Istanbul, which were built during the Roman and Byzantine empires.
