About Istanbul

Istanbul is a major city in Turkey that straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait. Its Old City reflects cultural influences of the many empires that once ruled here.

The iconic Byzantine Hagia Sophia features a soaring 6th-century dome and rare Christian mosaics.

Every country has it's own beauty throughout the year, but the best months to go to Istanbul are February, March, April, May, June, August, September, October!
