OVERVIEW
Summer in Istanbul is the busiest time of the year for tourists to visit. In July and August the daily temperature is about 28 degrees and the evenings are very mild. It is winter between November and February, and especially in December, precipitation can be heavy in Istanbul. Spring is the best time of the year to visit Istanbul. Temperatures are cooler than in the summer months and precipitation is rare, this period is also just before the peak season, so the city is quieter. From April to June, temperatures range from 15 to 25 degrees with pleasant evenings.
UNIVERSITY AND HOSPITALS

Our hospital, Marmara University Pendik Training and Research Hospital, is one of the most important health institutions in Istanbul. Since our hospital was newly built in Pendik, it is considered one of the most technologically advanced hospitals in Istanbul. It meets modern requirements quite nicely. The hospital is large enough to serve a significant part of the population of Istanbul. The fact that many patients prefer this hospital every day for treatment and care makes this hospital one of the most attractive health centers in the country. All of our clinical trainings are given at Marmara University Pendik Training and Research Hospital.

Taxis are also a useful means of transportation, but sometimes they try to make more money from foreign tourists by taking a longer route. So the best way for foreign tourists is public transport in Istanbul.

MUST SEE

Hagia Sophia

In translation it means 'church of divine wisdom'. The church is considered by many to be one of the finest examples of Byzantine architecture. Consecrated in 537 AD, its huge dome represents heaven. When Fatih Sultan Mehmet conquered the city in 1453, he was so impressed with its design that he converted it into a mosque. It remained as a mosque until the establishment of the Republic of Turkey, so it was turned into a museum. Highlights of the museum include Byzantine mosaics and huge Ottoman-era shields containing verses from the Qur'an. The museum is divided into two parts, the church and the mosaic gallery, each of which requires a separate ticket.

Grand Bazaar

The Grand Bazaar (Kapalicarsi) in Istanbul is one of the largest covered markets in the world with 60 streets and 5,000 shops, and attracts between 250,000 and 400,000 visitors daily.

This famous bazaar was first erected in 1493 and includes places for silk traders to rest themselves and their camels while selling their goods. The beautifully decorated ceilings and maze-like alleyways date back to the 15th century and are still in excellent condition. Luckily, the stalls do not date back that far and instead of selling slaves, as they once did, they now sell souvenirs, Turkish crafts and traditional rugs. All stall owners expect you to haggle with them over prices, so if you want the best price, you had better practice your bargaining skills. The bazaar is also home to a police station, two mosques, money changing facilities, numerous cafés and an information point. The bazaar is open Mondays to Saturdays from 08:30 to 19:00.
