Istanbul - Turkey
are images from Istanbul the romantic city
of Turkey, where the east meets the west.
The Blue Mosque, the Galata Bridge, the
Great Bazaar and other great sites, make
Istanbul a wonderful place to visit.
Stay in the centre of the triangle of the
old city (Galata Bridge to the Suleymaniye
Mosque to the Blue Mosque) and all the great
sites are within easy walking distance.
Running through the centre is a tram and
underground travel system for easy access -
in and out with the city.
Istanbul boasts the finest mosques in the
world and well worth a visit - the massive
interiors and the colours are magnificent.
Towering above the Bosphorus (which is
also known as the Istanbul Strait) is
the Galata Tower which has a lift to the top
for splendid views of Istanbul. It can be
reached by crossing the Galata Bridge from
the old city, then using the small ‘cable’
railway tram system to the top of the hill
and a short walk down part of the hill to
reach the tower.
