Istanbul is a city on two continents, where Asia and Europe meet in a great mix.
There is also a mix of old and new. With a long and interesting history the city has many old buldings, mosques and museums for the visitor to explore. In other parts you will find nice cafés and restaurants and modern shoppingcentres for great shopping.
Situated by the water and with its many mosques making wonderful siluttes against the sky it is one of the most beautiful big cities in the world. It is a city to fall in love with!
I visited Istanbul in 2003 and 2004 and the currency used in my tips is therefore the old Turkish Lira. To compare with today’s currency you just have to delete six zeros.
I had heard from Erkmen that two bus companies goes all the way from Istanbul to Amasra. They are As74 and Ozemniyet.... more travel advice
