İstanbul

Istanbul is the largest city of Turkey located on two continents at the junction of Europe and Asia on the Bosphorus. It is from a cultural and economic perspective the central and most diverse city in Turkey. The population is unclear. Because of the heavy influx of Turks and Kurds from eastern Anatolia and people of other nations, one estimates a population of 15 to 20 million. The Bophorus connects the Black Sea to the north with the Sea of ​​Marmara in the south and includes the Golden Horn as a natural harbor. The east / west extension is 100 km, the north / south extension of about 50 km. Being the economic center of Turkey leads to a lively juxtaposition of the historic and the modern. Due to its strategic location, the Greeks founded the city of Byzantium around 660 BC. Under Emperor Constantine the Great (306-337 AD), Christianity became the state religion. Later the name Constantinople prevailed. In the year 476 AD, the Western Roman Empire collapsed and the Eastern Roman Empire remained still almost 1000 years with Constantinople as its capital. In the following centuries the city was under changing conditions. Due to the over 2,000 years of history with many buildings from the Byzantine and Ottoman periods Istanbul has to offer a great cultural diversity, what makes the special charm of the city.
Istanbul is divided into three parts by the Bosphorus (Istanbul Bogazi), the dividing line between Europe and Asia, the mouth of the Golden Horn (Haliç), which bisects the western part and the Sea of ​​Marmara (Marmara Denizi), which forms a border in the south. Most sights are concentrated in the old city on the peninsula of Sultanahmet, to the west of the Bosphorus between the Horn and the Sea. In the north are Galata, Beyoğlu and Taksim, the heart of modern Istanbul, while Kadıköy is the major district on the comparatively less-visited Anatolian side of the city. The Black Sea forms the northern boundary of Istanbul.
