Sirkeci Garı

English:
The structure is one of the examples of convergence of Western eclecticism seen in especially 19th century Istanbul and the regional and national stylistic
patterns. The building was constructed as a terminal when Roumeli Railway reached Sirkeci, as a stone building and two wooden passenger waiting halls. Beside those temporary buildings, the construction of the main station building was started on 11 February 1888, and on 3 May 1890, Musir Hamdi Pasha made the opening on behalf of Abdulhamid II and the terminal started its service. It was designed by the German architect A. Tasmund. Granite marble and stones brought from Marseille, Aden were used on the facades. In the first years of its construction, the building was lighted using gas, and the stoves used for heating the passenger halls were brought from Austria. in those years the sea was much closer to the building and there were verandas
which went down to the sea. The building has a linear plan, consisting of units located side by side, and this fragmentation can be clearly observed from the façade. There are clock towers on both sides of the unit, located in the middle of the building, which is covered with a large vault. With the brick belts used in the façade, round, pointed arch windows, the entrance gate in the middle reminiscent of Seljuk crown gates, and decorated stone roof parapets, the building reflects the eclectic understanding of the period in its entirety.

The starting date of operation of the terminal is written on the flank façade of the building, both in Julian and Gregorian calendars. The Orient Express, which takes off from Paris, brought its passengers to this terminal for many decades.


Turkish:

Yapi, 19, yüzyıldı özellikle İstanbul'da görülen Bati seçmeciliǧi ile bölgesel ve ulusal biçim kalıplarının bir arada kullanıldıǧı orneklerden birisidir. Rumeli Demiryolu'nun Sirkeci'ye kadar gelmesiyle istasyon binası olarak bugün de mevcut olan kâgir bina ile yolcu bekleme salonu olarak iki ahşap baraka yapılmıştır. Geçici olarak tasarlanan bu binaların yanında esas istasyon binasının yapımına 11 Şubat 1888'de başlanılmış ve 3 Mayıs 1890'da ll. Abdülhamid adına Müşir Hamdi Paşa tarafından açılarak hizmete sunulmuştur. Tasarımını Alman mimar A. Tasmund'un yaptıǧı binanın cephesinde granit mermer ve Marsilya-Adenden getirilmiş taşlar kullanılmıştır. İlk yapıldıǧı yıllarda havagazı ile aydınlatılan binanın bekleme salonlarındaki büyük sobalar Avusturyadan getirilmiştir. Yine o yıllarda deniz binanın çok
daha yakınına kadar gelinmekte ve denize taraçalarla inilmekteydi. Yan yana gelen birimlerden oluşan lineer bir planı olan binanın cephesinde de bu bölümlenme açıkça gözlenmektedir. Binanın ortasında yer alan ve büyük bir tonozla ortulu birimin iki yanında saat kuleleri yer almaktadır. Cephede kullanılan tuğla bantlar, daire, sivri kemerli pencereler, ortada yer alan Selçuklu Donemi taç kapılarını andıran giriş kapısı, bezeli taş çatı parapetleri ile bina tümüyle devrin seçmeci anlayışını yansıtmaktadır.

Binanın yan cephesinde garın hizmete girdiǧi tarih, hem Rumi takvime hem de Miladi takvime göre yazılmıştır. Paris'ten kalkan Şark Ekspresi uzun yıllar bu istasyona yolcu indirmiş ve buradan yolcu almıştır.
