Istanbul is the only city in the world which was founded on two continents. Istanbul has been settled for some 6000 years. A modest Paleolithic village evolved to become the capital of three powerful empires: the Roman, the Byzantine and the Ottoman through a colorful and long history of invasion.
Strategically, Istanbul’s position is unrivalled, guarding the division between Europe and Asia and the Bosporus, the narrow channel providing the only sea passage out of the Black Sea into Mediterranean. Istanbul is one of the greatest cities the world has ever known and is the meeting point of East and West. The variety one can enjoy in the city is really fascinating.
