Istanbul, once known as the capital of capital cities, has many unique features.

It is the only city in the world to straddle two continents, and the only one to have been a capital during two consecutive empires – Christian and Islamic.

Once was capital of the Ottoman Empire, Istanbul still remains the commercial, historical and cultural pulse of Turkey, and its beauty lies in its ability to embrace its contradictions.

Istanbul is an old city, you can see the remains of many ancient civilizations and their culture in harmony with Turkish culture.

Ancient and Modern,

Religious and Secular,

Asia and Europe,

Mystical and Earthly all co-exist here.

The city is full of contrasts, and colorful views.
