Located next to the Hotel Europe it was very convenient to me while staying there. Lots of the same things you can find in other places in the Old Town but it is a less hectic and more quiet place to shop.

Ghazi Husrev Bey's Bezistan (bedestan - covered market) represents a smaller variant of Istanbul's Kapali Carsi, or Grand Bazaar, but built among the same principles. Gives you a taste of Orient in the middle of Europe...

This Bezistan is pretty much like a former sample of Bursa or Istanbul covered bazaars. You can find copper works as well as clothing as its name represents.

Our family of 5 visited this covered market in June 2016. Aside from the lovely interior ceiling, I found the offerings fairly average (nothing too special). Do not go out of your way for this one.
