"There God, man, nature and art have together
created and placed the most marvelous point of view that the human
eye can contemplate on earth."
Istanbul, once known
as the capital of capital cities, has many unique features. It is
the only city in the world to straddle two continents, and the only
one to have been a capital during two consecutive empires -
Christian and Islamic. Once was capital of the Ottoman Empire,
Istanbul still remains the commercial, historical and cultural pulse
of Turkey, and its beauty lies in its ability to embrace its
contradictions. Ancient and modern, religious and secular, Asia and
Europe, mystical and earthly all co-exist here.
