Istanbul embraces two continents, one arm reaching out to Asia, the other to Europe. Trough city's heart, the Bosphorus Strait, course the waters of the Black Sea, the Sea of Marmara and the Golden Horn.

Today Istanbul honors and preserves the legacy of its past as the former capital of three successive empires the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman while looking forward to its modern future.

Indeed, it is Istanbuls variety that fascinates its visitors. The museums, castles, palaces, great mosques, bazaars and the sights of naturel beauty seem inexhaustible.

As you recline on the shores of the Bosphorus at sunset contemplating the red evening light reflected in the windows on the opposite shore you understand, suddenly and profoundly, why so many centuries ago settlers chose to build on this remarkable site.



At times such as these, you feel that Istanbul is truly one of the most glorious cities in the world...
