Istanbul

Istanbul was named European Capital of Culture in 2010. No wonder, as it has been the capital city of four empires: Roman, Byzantine, Latin and Ottoman and offers a wealth of history and art.

From the breathtaking Byzantine architecture of the Hagia Sophia to the lavish suites of the Ottoman Topkapi Palace and the legendary Turkish hamams, Istanbul is laden with historical treasures. A city of contrasts, Istanbul also boasts an avant-garde Museum of Modern Art as well as eclectic fashion from Turkey’s up-and-coming, and established designers such as Atil Kutoglu.

Istanbul is the only bi-continental city in the world. The majestic Bosphorus Strait divides the European and Asian halves of the city. With the beautiful Golden Horn harbor, three world-class marinas and the peaceful Princes’ Islands to choose from, an excursion on the Bosphorus is a must.
