WELCOME TO ISTANBUL

Without a shadow of doubt, Istanbul – like London, New York or Paris – is one of the world’s great cities. Superbly situated either side of the Bosporus Strait separating Europe from Asia, it is the only city in the world built on two continents. For more than 1500 years it was the capital of three empires: Roman, Byzantine and the Ottoman. It was the most multicultural city in Europe for centuries, with tens of languages spoken on its streets.

Join Bright Tribers from all over Europe at the heart of this Timeless City. You will sense what the old Istanbul must have been like at the famous Grand Bazaar. Haghia Sophia, once the greatest church in Christendom, Topkapi Palace, where the Ottoman sultans lived, Blue Mosque, whose slender minarets define the city’s skyline, the old Roman hippodrome and the Egyptian obelisk – all within a stone’s throw. Walking around Istanbul, it’s hard to imagine another city that can rival it as an open air museum.

It’s not only history, culture or architecture that makes Istanbul great – there’s so much more! The city is a shopping paradise and modern stores in Istanbul give London and Paris a run for their money. You can take a ferry from the European side to the Asian side any minute. It’s quite ordinary to have your breakfast in Europe and lunch in Asia. Street food is at its best and Turkish coffee is captivating. Hip galleries like Istanbul Modern are situated nearby the Bosphorus waterfront while pulsating entertainment quarters like Beyoğlu offer amazing night life. If you seek a truly unique experience, you can visit a Hamam (Turkish bath).
