It's Istanbul. Constantinople. It's Carigrad. Call him whatever you want. A city that never sleeps, a city that always offers something new, a city that throughout its history exudes mysticty. A city that joins two continents, a city that brings cultures together, a city that joins religions. Whatever kind of fun you want. It's Istanbul. Whatever kind of vacation you want. It's Istanbul. A city for which there's never enough time to explore all its charms. Istanbul was once the capital of three great empires, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman, and now Turkey's largest city and its cultural and economic centre
Napoleon Bonaparte said Istanbul is the capital of the world for a reason, because every traveler, no matter how many times in this city, will always bring a new experience, see something different, even if you visit the same places more than once.
