"European" Istanbul Favorite Tip by leffe3

Istanbul General: 533 reviews and 651 photos


Favorite thing: Crusader, Ottoman, 19th & 20th century European create a melange of style for the city. The earlier periods attract the tourists, but there there is also a degree of elegance in the 19th century city around Taksim.
