This gate knit during Byzantine period in 12th century and stayed closed for 700 years that is why called “closed gate” by Ottomans.

The gate was reopened in 1886, to fecilitate arrivals and departures to the Balıklı Greek Hospital.

Why was the gate called Belgrade?

After the conquest of Belgrade, a group of Belgrade prisoners were brought to Istanbul in Magnificent Süleyman time. A part of prisoners who are tradesmen, was placed around this gate. The part that understands from waterways were placed in the Belgrade Forests. Thus, prisoners of Belgrade gave their names to two points in Istanbul. Let their memories be eternal.

The gates have defense towers and are defended using these towers. It wasn’t at the Yedikule Gate, but we can see the defense towers at the Belgrade Gate. There are stairs on the left and right side of the gate when you entered from gate in. You can climb the using this stairs to historical walls and can watch a different panorama of Istanbul from on the defense towers of Belgrade Gate. While you’re here, don’t miss this opportunity.

The other gate is Silivri Gate which is 500 meters away . You should arrive to the Silivri Gate along the Hisaraltı Street, from interior, isn’t from side gardens. From Yedikule Gate to the Belgrade Gate, you have already seen gardens and walls.

You will see a mosque a little later when walking along the Hisaraltı Street. Hadım İbrahim Pasha Mosque that built by Mimar Sinan. Silivri Gate is in front of you when leave the mosque.
