Historic Wonders Meet Modern Life in This Timeless City

Istanbul not only straddles Asia and Europe -- it also spans the centuries. Its heritage is embodied by the Topkapi and Dolmabahce Palaces, the soaring Hagia Sophia, the maze-like Grand Bazaar, and the domes and minarets of the Blue Mosque, where Muslims pray five times a day. Meanwhile, the 21st century reigns at western shops on Istiklal Caddesi, upscale boutiques in Nisantasi, and throbbing nightclubs by the Bosporus.
