History of Umraniye from Foundation to Republic – I
Ümraniye, whose real name was 190 Yalnız Servi Köy, became the neighborhood and then the village with the settling of the immigrants who migrated to Istanbul in 1877-1878 after the Russo-Turkish War which took place between the Ottoman Empire and Russia (1906). As in the other parts of the empire, the villages that were established by settling the immigrants during the Russo-Turkish War on empty land were called “Ümraniye” which means “advanced, flourishing, untouched”. However, when the deportees who came after the Russo-Turkish War came and settled and became a village, they were called as “Muhacirköy” and “Ümraniye“. Finally, in 1928, the town of Üsküdar Merkez (center)in 1935, remained as sub-district within the borders of the Üsküdar Kısıklı. On March 29, 1962, the Municipality of Ümraniye was officially established. In 1987 it became a district.
