<b>Istanbul is Turkey's largest cities and is one of the most exciting cities in the world. We spent two days in February, 2000 in Istanbul as it was the first two days of a 9 day vacation (5 which included a Greek Isle Cruise on Renaissance Crusies). Istanbul has a amazing skyline with domes and minarets of the mosques spread accross Istanbul seven hills.
Istanbul is the only city in the world to be build on two continents. Seperated by the Bosporus, on one side is Asia and the other is Europe. We spent our time on the Europe site where most of the sightseeing and hotels our located.
Istanbul was found by the Greeks in about 660 BC, and has also been known as Byzantine and Constantinope at different times in it history. It was the capital of the Byzantium Empire for over 1000 years and of the Ottoman Empire for 500 years. In 1923, the capital was moved to 220 miles east to Ankara, Turkey.</b>
