Flight Distance and Flying Time to Istanbul

Istanbul

Istanbul is a spectacular city that offers many unique experiences and magnificent sights. A feature which makes it entirely unique is the fact that is sits on two different continents. It maintains an old foot in Europe while having the other, more modern side in Asia.

Though divided by the Bosphorus Strait , this old world city maintained the status of capital to the Christian Byzantine and Islamic Ottoman empires. Signs from both empires can be seen in the modern city Istanbul is today.

Commercial shipping is made possible by the city's setting right on the water. This waterfront location also made it an excellent military sight. Constantinople, so named during its reign as capital to the Roman Empire, the city was coveted for its world trade potential, that is until Mehmet the Conqueror got a hold of it in the 1400s and the Ottoman Empire took over. Though the capital has since been moved to Ankara, it is Istanbul that retains the rich history and vibrant culture of today's Turkey .

A city of strong contrasts, it offers captivating glimpses into its history by way of the Byzantine ruins, mosques, churches and bath houses. Magnificent palaces share the streets with bustling and colourful bazaars. A new and shiny Istanbul attracts tourists with its hot nightclubs and inviting bars.

Boutiques offer many shopping opportunities, while office buildings and distinguished suburbs spread out around the city. Witness the awakening of the day as the inhabitants of this exciting city follow the call to prayer. The city comes to life as almost 12 million residents take to the streets, bazaars and shops to sell their wares. Affluent shoppers share the chaos with enthusiastic tourists and busy residents.
