OVERVIEW

Istanbul is the biggest city in Turkey which is also the cultural, historical, economical and scientific capital of the country. The city has been built on two continents, Europe and Asia. This placement of the city gives Turkey notable geostrategic importance. The Bosphorus, dividing the city in the half and separating the continents, has an epic beauty that has been written poems and songs upon. You can take ferry tours on Bosphorus, go on walking or running by the coast or just sit and relax or eat on some cafes/restaurants that are built right next to it.

The city has been around for more than 1500 years. There are plenty of historical attractions like palaces, museum, churches, mosques, towers… Although the city itself is just historic to walk around in some parts. There’s a growing independent artist population in Istanbul that are causing independent studios, stages, concert halls to open. You can experience great works of art in the city when you were least expecting.

The climate is never so harsh while humidity can be disturbing during summer months.
