About Istanbul

Istanbul has a timeless charm that owes much to its rich history. The city was historically referred to as Byzantium and Constantinople. It served as a focal point of several ancient empires. Straddling two continents, Istanbul is a city divided by the narrow waterway known as the Bosphorus. The city embraces its mixture of European and Asian culture and visitors will sense the contrasts with each turn.

Regarding its main sights; Hagia Sophia is considered one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. A short walk down the street takes you to the Grand Bazaar for the most exciting shopping experience you’ll ever have. The Galata Tower offers beautiful views of the city. It is located just North of the Golden Horn in the Galata Quarter. The Sultan Ahmed Mosque is Istanbul’s most famous site and is the top thing to do in Istanbul. Visited by nearly 3 million people daily, Istiklal Avenue is the beating heart of the city of Istanbul.
