  Bogazici (Bosphorus)
by Sharrie

The BOSPHORUS cruise is a must for all first-timers to Istanbul. BOGAZICI in Turkish, it connects the Black sea & Marmara Sea & divides European & Asean Turkey. It is here that one gets to see how the rich & famous live in Turkey. A 1 1/2 hour cruise along the Bosphorus takes one across from the shore of Europe to Asia & back. Palaces, fortress, mosques, universities, homes of the rich, 5* hotels & cafes (even those frequent by the gays) are located along the shores of these 2 continents.

For photos of the wonderful architecture of the Bosphorus, kindly visit my Karakoy page (this is where we boarded the boat).
