Mosques and skyscrapers. Such is the unmistakable skyline of the Turkish megalopolis, reflecting the juxtappositions of a most ancient city. Situated along the Bosphorus Strait, Istanbul is the only metropolis in the world belonging to two continents, Europe and Asia.
The symbol of the city is St. Sophia’s Basilica. Built by Constantine, it was later turned into a mosque. Today, it is a museum with a quite distinctive architecture, with its huge dome and wonderful mosaics.
At a few steps from it, the notorious Blue Mosque stands out, dating back to the Ottoman period and representing one of the major Turkish-Islamic architectural examples.
