About the city:
Istanbul, the only city in the world built on two continents, stands on both shores of the Istanbul Bogazi (Bosphorus) where the waters of the Black Sea mingle with those of the Sea of Marmara. The Golden Horn divides European Istanbul in two. Here on this splendid site, Istanbul guards the precious relics of three empires, of which she has been the capital; a unique link between East and West, past and present.
However, Istanbul is not only historic, it is also a magnificent city that is fascinating and vividly alive. Beneath the unchanging skyline of her domes and minarets there is continual bustle and movement of crowds, the rumbling of vehicles along ancient cobblestone streets, the incessant coming and going and the cries of street sellers mingling with shipping sounds from the busy port.
Istanbul has endless variety: museums, ancient churches, palaces, great mosques, bazaars and the Istanbul Bogazi (Bosphorus). However long you stay, whether for just a few days or longer, your visit to this eclectic city will be unforgettable.
