Istanbul is a city that has a little more than others, with its unique vibe, it attracts many visitors every year who spend just couple of days in the city or even take a longer vacation. Bargaining on stalls, strolling between more or less well-known landmarks and enjoying delicious and especially affordable food – these are just a few reasons why Istanbul is definitely worth a visit.
Istanbul, a city of bazaars, mosques and kebabs
Forget about the all-inclusive resorts near Mediterranean Sea, Istanbul is the real Turkey you want to discover. The city has a really different but at the same time very interesting vibe, it has cheap and especially good food, a whole lot of sights and numerous markets, where you can find practically everything you want. Istanbul is great for a quick weekend city break or longer vacation.
One vacation, three continents
This time, our trip will be a little different than we are used to, we will visit three continents in ten days! Perhaps at first glance, this really seems like and extremely crowded travel plan, but according to the calculations, this will be a really great daily schedule for us 🙂
In the beginning of June, we will fly with Turkish Airlines from Venice to Seychelles, but we will do a short stop in Istanbul, which lies in both Europe and Asia. The city has as many as 15 million inhabitants and it is the largest city in Europe. There we will certainly be impressed by architecture, which is a mixture of Christian and Muslim origin. Istanbul was in the past a capital of Eastern Roman and also Ottoman empire.
