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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya). You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Florya Sahil Parkı and Dalia Beach. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Suma Beach, admire the striking features of Basilica Cistern, tour the pleasant surroundings at Solar Plajı, and take a stroll through Istiklal Street.

To see more things to do, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Istanbul trip planner .

If you are flying in from Czech Republic, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 7°C in December, and nighttime lows around 7°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
