Half in Europe and half in Asia, Istanbul is an international city with ancient roots. Both Western Christian and Middle Eastern Muslim influences, along with ancient Roman and Egyptian ones, can be seen in the city’s culture, food and architecture. One of Istanbul’s most famous landmarks is the Hagia Sofia, a former Greek Orthodox church that was converted to a mosque during the Ottoman Empire. The stone Galata Tower, built in 1348 and a former prison, is today a popular tourist attraction offering beautiful views of the Bosphorus, the body of water that separates Europe from Asia.
Flights to Istanbul are available via Istanbul Ataturk Airport (IST).
