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. The two monumental buildings represent only the most visible part of an immense patrimony made of over 2.600 mosques, 123 churches and 26 synagogues.

For shopaholics, it is a must to visit the Grand Bazar, one of the most ancient markets in the world. While the sea aficionados will have a chance to relax on a Bosphorus cruise tour.
