Istanbul is the crossroads of Europe and Asia, strategically located on both banks of the Bosporus. This magical metropolis harmoniously combines a glorious past with a surprisingly modern present. Istanbul, once the capital of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires is up to today of capital importance.  The largest city in Turkey is a treasure chest of impressive sights. It is easy to lose track of time in the Grand Bazaar, healthy to recharge one’s batteries in a traditional Hamman, romantic to walk across the Galata Bridge at sunset and mind-boggling to marvel at the splendours of the Hagia Sophia.
