Located on both sides of the Bosphorus, the strait between the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea, Istanbul can be seen as a bridge between Europe with its western modernity and Asia with the traditional cultures. It is a lively city where you can find and do almost anything you’d like – do lots of shopping, try out the Turkish food and delights at cafes, restaurants and street food, visit the art, history and culture museums, experience the nightclub life… you name it! With a population of 15 million, Istanbul is one of the biggest cities in the world where Turkish people sometimes even call it chaotic and exciting thanks to its multicultural and lively life at any given time.
