Istanbul, the only city in the world located in two continents. Bosphorus divides the city in two, the western European part, and the eastern Asian part. With over 2500 years of history, and the fact that Istanbul was the capital of three kingdoms through the history, gives the city a unique cultural heritage. Visit the ancient Hagia Sophia church/mosque which now days are a museum and listen to the imam from the neighbouring Blue Mosque. Spend your day shopping and haggling prices of spices and exciting oriental goods in one of the city’s many bazaars. But don’t do the mistake to miss out on a traditional Turkish steam bath. The city has an abundant supply of food and fast food you can find for just a few coins. Buy a real Doner kebab and taste baklava from any of the city’s bakeries.
