Beykoz is one of the charming districts of Istanbul , where the green of the fields meets the blue of the sea. According to some, the history of this region dates back the 8th century B.C. Our knowledge about the first settlers in Beykoz is limited, but it is known that durng the Roman period there was a sacrificial area at Anadolu Kavağı where people who wanted to travel to the Black Sea would make a sacrife to Zeus and Poseidon, hoping for favorable winds.

During the Byzantine period, Beykoz was a vilage for fishermen. After the conquest of Constantinople, the Muslim population here increased. In the 18th century, Beykoz was a popular district and was an outing place and a holiday resort with is beautiful fields, natural spring waters, and seaside houses, Beykoz became the pearl of the Bosphorus, with the Kanlıca, Küçüksu and Göksu streams, and the Çubuklu and Tokat gardens. From the 19th century, Beykoz, adorned with groves, faountains, and places, maintained itself as an excursion place and played host many travelers and many royal visitors.

Starting from the first quarter of the 19th century, industrialization started to come to Beykoz. The area is particulary famous for the glass ware produced here;  there is also a factory in Paşabahçe.
