Panorama of the Salacak neighborhood

Salacak is a neighborhood in the Üsküdar municipality of Istanbul, Turkey. It is located on the Asian shore of the Bosporus, to the south of the historic center of Üsküdar.

The word salacak means "bench for washing a corpse," but the name is reported to come from sala meaning "village" (language unspecified) with the Turkish suffix -c?k, "small."

The neighborhood's best-known landmark is the Maiden's Tower (K?z Kulesi), just offshore from Salacak in the Bosporus.
