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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Galata Tower. Escape the urban bustle at Bosphorus Strait and Goztepe Tabiat Parki. Go for a jaunt from Istanbul to Basiskele to see Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki about 1h 55 min away. There's much more to do: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Bentler Tabiat Parki, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, admire the landmark architecture of Basilica Cistern, and look for all kinds of wild species at Irmak Tabiat Parki.
