Istanbul (also Constantinople, Byzantine) - is a different, colorful city that fascinates with various colors. Here are combined Europe with Asia, old history with modernity, luxury with poverty, nature with laziness and boiling energy. Even the Bosphorus, the blue artery of Istanbul, has dual nature. The waters of the Bosphorus flow in opposite directions: upper stream flows from the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara, and downstream flows on the contrary. Gustave Flaubert, who is fascinated by the crowds and diversity of Istanbul, said: ‘’ Constantinople must be the capital of the world’’. At that time, the city became the capital of the Greek, Byzantine, Latin and Ottoman Empires; each of them has left a mark. Traveling in Turkey is all about history and travel should start from this great city, where two continents stand.
Hagia Sophia: The Church of Holy Wisdom, undoubtedly one of the greatest architectural creations in the world, was used as a mosque during Ottomans and now serves as a museum. Byzantine Hippodrome: The center for entertainment, amusement and sports in the city during the Roman and Byzantine Empires. The Egyptian Obelisk, the serpentine column and the German fountain of Willhelm II are sites to be visited. Blue Mosque: The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, one of the most revered masterpieces of the Islamic world, is famous with its blue ceramic tiles and six minarets.
