Istanbul city is one of the biggest metropolises in the whole world with its 14.657.434 population as of 1st of June 2017. And that's, of course, an official number. According to some important sources, it's actually more than 20 million.
It's the only city in the World that spreads over two continents. Istanbul was the capital of 3 great empires before the foundation of the Republic of Turkey. Byzantium, Roman and Ottoman Empire.
I was born in this city and working in tourism business since late 90's and if you ask me if i have seen every corner in Istanbul? My answer would be that i maybe have seen %30 or 40% of the city. This is a huge city.So if you are planing to see everything in Istanbul in one week, sorry but you are just fooling yourself. With a little help from the local advisors, guides and friends who visited before, you will enjoy the food and see the most important places.
I aim to help people to make the most out of the city in my blog. Since it's impossible to squeeze everything in one post, i divided into sections, so people can find everyting easier.
