Kara Sevda

One of Istanbul’s most special neighbourhoods, Karagümrük… It embraces all, without any concern for their age, sex and ideas. It gets more beatiful as it embraces more, finds its colour with the colour of it’s population. Makes everyone fall in love as they wander its streets. It’s called Karagümrük..
If geography is one’s destiny, then the people’s fate is this geography. The stronger this unitification gets, more beatiful the destiny becomes. Karagümrük is the neighbourhood of people bringing their fates together.
Karagümrük is the neighbourhood that speaks for its own. Sometimes via football, sometimes via music and sometimes via it’s serious minded men. Its sincere and welcoming. Which is why people who listens to it, understands it, loves this place and its people with a burning passion.
