"Shipwrecks Ahoy!" Istanbul Favorite Tip by mrclay2000
Istanbul General: 539 reviews and 673 photos
Favorite thing: Istanbul is easily one of the major ports on the globe. Most of its registries are local, but sometimes Greek and Russian, and generally not gigantic vessels by any means. A fully-laden city ferry will hold about 700, and this compares in size with most of what you'll find in the harbor. Every now and again, the supertankers leave the Black Sea and steer for the Mediterranean. With so much traffic, capsizing and collisions are bound to occur.
