Mese street

Mese Street was first main street in İstanbul. Mese Street as a part of Via Egnatia which was more or less !000 Kilometers long between Augustaion Square  and Dyrrachium port in Albania   After Construction of İstanbul Great Walls , Mese Street was called as a  Via Regia ( King Way ) .But People of Constantinople called Mese Sreet which means Main Street. After Palace location was changed by Roman İmperial.  Mese Street's Popularity was decreased. After Constantinople was conquered by Ottoman , Old Peninsula was used location of Palace of Ottoman imperial again. So  Mese Street became busier. Because Grand Vizier and Viziers used Mese street to go to Topkapı Palace for imperial Council . That's why Mese Street called Divan (Council) Street in Turkish today. Mese Street has been used as a tramvay since 1992.
