Istanbul is the only city in the world, which spreads over two continents: it lies at a point where Asia and Europe are separated by a narrow strait – the Bosphorus.

The historic city of Istanbul is situated on a peninsula flanked on three sides by the Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn. It has been the capital of three greatest empires, the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires.

Istanbul is a place where the ancient meets the modern. For shopping there is a great variety of choices. One being the Grand Bazaar. Still retaining the dreamlike atmosphere of the “good old days,” yet, it presents you with the newest choices of the modern world: eye-catching jewellery, copperwork, rugs, leatherwear, suede wear, and many more… Once caught by it, you may lose track of time strolling in the Grand Bazaar.

Hagia Sophia

Besides the Grand Bazaar to go back home with unforgettable and beautiful memories, there is also other amazing places to visit, like The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace.

Besides its historical importance and cultural heritage, the city is furbished with modern hotels, elegant restaurants, nightclubs, bars, historical bazaars and shops as well.
