Istanbul
Istanbul
Istanbul is not only the capital of Turkey, but of the four great empires of the past as well. Fabulous palaces of the Ottoman leaders, Byzantine churches, mosques, fortresses and towers, parks and squares – the architecture of Istanbul led by the famous Aya Sofia and Blue Mosque complexes – is a wild cocktail of different epochs, cultures and religions. After the sunset the romance of the eternal city is expanded by its night life – picturesque and vivid. To make a trip around Bosporus, to see the border between Europe and Asia and vast underground reservoir, to forget about the time walking down the streets of the biggest eastern bazaars with a roof, and to hear muezzins singing from the dark silhouettes of the city’s minarets against the sunset – that is what Istanbul is worth visiting for.

Istanbul on the map
Dolmabahce Palace is a magnifical palace of the Sultans, which still plays its role of being a residence for heads of states in Istanbul. Built in the 19th the Ottoman Empire. Its architecture and the interiors is an intricate mixture of eastern motives and western baroque style. It’s open for tourists who can enjoy the beauty of the sultan rooms and his harem. The interior is also decorated with Aivazovsky paintings, made on request of the Ottoman Empire sovereign.
Balik Ekmek is a Turkish version of a sandwich with grilled fish. You can buy it everywhere in the streets and restaurants of Turkey. The freshest fish is grilled in own juice and served on bread. It just looks simple, but actually tastes great.
