Sightseeing in Istanbul

Photo: WOW Turkey
Istanbul is the only city embracing two continents: Asia and Europe. The Bosphorus, meandering through the heart of the city, combines the waters of the Black Sea and Marmara Sea.

Istanbul, the former capital of three empires- Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman- displays many surviving historical works of art revealing the traces of these empires.

Istanbul, while preserving the inheritance of its past looks forward to its modern future…

Istanbul a source of inspiration for photographers, artists, poets...

Well, to cut it short, Istanbul is a fascinating city with something for everyone. The museums, churches, palaces, mosques, bazaars, forests, groves and sights of natural beauty seem never-ending.

As you rest on the European shore of the Bosphorus at sunset and look at the golden evening light reflected on the windows of the houses on the Asian shore, or as you stand on the Asian shore and watch the sun setting behind the elegant minarets of old Istanbul, you immediately appreciate, why so many centuries ago, people chose to settle on this extraordinary spot. Indeed there will be times you feel Istanbul is really one of the most glorious cities in the world.

We believe words are not enough to describe the treasures of Istanbul so come along and find out

I want to give a warning about Golden Beach Club. I have never received such an arrogant and impolite behavior as I did when I tried to book a place in there. My boyfriend called on Friday and tried to book accommodation for 3 for Wednesday night and asked also about service bus to there. They told that service will start on Tuesday morning and told that they will call in case of problems. They never called and when we called them on Monday night ourselves, they told that there will not be any service at all. Nice. So we decided to book for weekend as they told there will be service then. We called uncountable times and nobody answered. Finally, I managed to contact them and when I asked if they speak English a girl told arrogantly ´no´ and closed the phone. I was so amazed that I tried to call back another number and the answer I got was unbelievable: ´You cannot book a place, do you understand, you just have to come here, thats it.´ What? I am sry, if you have a website saying reservation and if just a bit ago you reserved a place then what is your problem now? I have never felt so unwelcomed somewhere. Right now, I am happy not visiting this place as I do not imagine what is the service there if they already act like this in reserving. You can find a place better than that!
