Wait for Our Summer pakages 2012 to Turkey
Istanbul, Turkey's largest city, is home to more than 15 million people and is still growing as people move there from rural areas to find work. It is unique among the cities of the world, having one foot in Europe and the other in Asia. Istanbul is Turkey's economic capital and biggest trade center, home to nearly half of the country's wealth.
Much of Istanbul is hilly and especially in the old part many of the streets are steep and narrow. This big city spread over seven hills and surrounded on three sides by water and it is atonishingly beautiful.
European Istanbul is the part of the city that most tourists think about when they talk about visiting Istanbul. This side is a trade and business center which contains old city and wonderland of mosques, opulent palaces, museums. Meanwhile the Asian side holds Western-style suburbs as more of residential areas. Millions of people cross the Bosphorus two or more times a day, making the crossing either by way of the two bridges (the Ataturk Bridge and the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge) that span it, or aboard passenger ferries.
