At December 4, 2004 the circle of "United Buddy Bears" was opened in the metropolis Istanbul with its 12 Mio. inhabitants. The exhibition site was in Beyoglu at Tepebasi Pera Meydani - with a view of the "Golden Horn".
Thus Istanbul was the fourth stage of the global tour, after Berlin, Kitzbuehel and Hong Kong.
Please read the Message of greeting by the Mayor of Berlin, Klaus Wowereit.
The exhibition owes its origin and the possibility to be visited all over the world completely free of charge to the committed work of many institutions, organisations, administrative bodies, companies and individuals.
For supporting the 5th exhibition of the United Buddy Bears in Istanbul we want to thank:
