Istanbul is the enchanting City of the Sultans where Eastern and Western civilisations meet. It is the only city in the world to be built on two continents, and stands on the shores of the Bosphorus where the waters of the Black Sea meet those of the Sea of Marmara and the Golden Horn. This fascinating city guards the precious relics of the three empires of which it has been the
capital. Among the many legendary sights of the Byzantine Istanbul are the Blue Mosque, the Dolmabahce Palace, the Topkapi Palace, St. Sophia Basilica and the Grand Bazaar where traders sell everything from gold to spices.
