Main Venue – Kadikoy Anadolu Lisesi, Moda, Kadikoy
On the most busy street in all of Moda, Kadikoy Anadolu Lisesi has a very historically and culturally valuable location.
There are three ways the school can be accessed.

After exiting the terminal and walking through the train station tunnel, participants should walk along the parking lots until the Yogurtcu Park. Once you reach the Park, walk towards the other end and turn right uphill at the deadVend, which is the street where KAL is located. KAL should be on your left hand side.
Bahariye Caddesi: For those whose transport will be arriving to Kadikoy via Goztepe should exit at the “Altiyol” stop. Right after the exit from the vehicle, a giant statue of a Bull (Boga) should be visible. After crossing the traffic lights, participants should follow uphill along the Tram tracks and follow them up Bahariye street. The very end of Bahariye street, which is also where the Moda Ilkogretim Okulu is located is Dr. Esat Isik Street, which is where KAL is located. Participants should turn left and walk down the street. KAL should be on the right hand side of the street. For those who prefer not to walk, the historic Moda Tram passes Bahariye approximately every 20 minutes and passes in front of the school’s street.
