Turkey Airport Guide

Istanbul (Discount Istanbul Airfare)

Spanning the continents of Europe and Asia, Istanbul is a bustling, cosmopolitan city, and its history as the former capital of the Byzantine and Ottoman empires has left a rich legacy of mosques, churches, museums and magnificent palaces, coupled with bustling bazaars and a vibrant street life.

Istanbul is made up of three distinct cities. The old city of Istanbul is decorated with parks and gardens. The main attractions include Topkapi, the residential palace of the Ottoman sultans overlooking the Sea of Marmara and the Bosphorus; the Blue Mosque, the only mosque in the world with six minarets; St Sophia, once a Byzantine cathedral, later a mosque and now a museum; and, underground, the Byzantine cistern supported by 336 Corinthian columns.
Across the Golden Horn, in stark contrast, is modern Istanbul, Pera, where the larger hotels are situated.

On the third shore lies Uskudar (Scutari), the Asian part of Istanbul, where Florence Nightingale nursed the sick during the Crimean War. Two massive suspension bridges now span the Bosphorus and afford a panoramic view of Istanbul.

Istanbul is convenient in that many seaside resorts on the Bosphorus are only a short drive away. Other attractions are the ancient fortifications at Rumeli Hisar, the National Park of Mount Uludag, the ruins of Troy and the boat trips on the Bosphorus or to the Princes Islands.
