Istanbul, the capital city of Ottoman Empire and Byzantium. Which hosted different cultures and religions for more than 2 milennium.... And every Culture has left their treasures of Architecture... Numerous historical sites creates a rich historical background to the city. And wonderful landscapes of Bosphorus waterway gives an amazing atmosphere

Istanbul is the only city on Two continents, Where europe and asia meets together.. Whereever you are coming from, you will be dazzled in Istanbul with so many different things that you havent seen before.

You will see a rich Historical culture, you will see the sights of Asia and also the sights of Modern Europe. You will see how the life was in Ottoman Empire period and How the life is in 21st century.. You will see the Churches and Mosques and early in the moning you may wake up with the pray of the muezzins.. You will be tired of walking and also your mind may get tired of seeing so much diffenent things.. So you need some time to restore them..

However you will be delighted to be in a real Harmonical environment.. And will be looking forward to be back..

Address: Istanbul..
Directions: On Europe and On Asia
