Amazing Places in Turkey


Istanbul is a charming city full of historical sites complete with warm, friendly locals. It is so rich in history, its former names  —Byzantium and Constantinople—  may take you back to history class. Tourism in Istanbul can likely owe its steady flow to the architectural masterpieces, including remnants of both these empires, that still stand tall in the heart of the city.

The Bosphorus river runs through the heart of the city. This river not only divides Turkey but also runs along Europe and Asia’s continental border.

The strait between the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea bridges Asia and Europe both physically and culturally. It is also the world’s narrowest strait used for international navigation.

While you are planning your trip to Istanbul, make sure to verify whether you are required to carry a Turkey e-Visa in order to enter the country.
