"ISTANBUL" Turkey Things to Do Tip by Pinat

Turkey Things to Do: 1,137 reviews and 1,882 photos


So much has already been said on VT and elsewhere.
So many people come to Turkey just to see her.
So many songs, so many books, so many poems, so many paintings: She attracted the people of all arts.
She brought together two continents: Asia and Europe
She was the capital of two great empires of the time: The Byzantium Empire and the Ottoman Empire.
She is "2010 European Capital of Culture".
So much to see, smell, hear, touch, learn, feel, remember, explore...
She is one of a kind: She is Istanbul...
