  Istanbul from Sky
by Erkmen

Favorite thing: Istanbul, Where Europe meets with Asia.. Just a small waterway passing in Istanbul is dividing the Europe and Asia. Up Left side on the picture is the european part and the down right side is the Asian side.. and the city is divided from the middle.. The sea Above is the Blaksea and below is the inland Marmara Sea...

Istanbul functions as a bridge from Europe to Asia, thus sometimes it has functioned as a barrier from Asia to Europe also.. The city stands between religion, culture, and imperial powers for almost 2,500 years..

Istanbul has an area of 5712 Km2, bigger than the Benelux countries and with a population of over 10.000.000, is one of the largest cities in the world.

The satellite picture is also to describe you some major points in Istanbul..
