A physical and cultural bridge between Europe and Asia, the transcontinental city of Istanbul serves as a living reminder of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires.
On the 26th (Fri), take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, steep yourself in history at Hagia Sophia Museum, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and finally admire the landmark architecture of Basilica Cistern.

For other places to visit and tourist information, go to the Istanbul trip planner.

If you are flying in from Bulgaria, the closest major aiports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
