Top-Rated Tourist Attractions in Istanbul

Fascinated by empires over the centuries, between Europe and Asia, Istanbul is one of the great metropolises in the world. Founded around 1000 BC, the colony of Byzantium became the great capital of the Byzantine Empire of Constantinople and, after the Ottoman conquest of the city, it held its glorious place as the heart of their empire. The city (officially renamed Istanbul after the founding of the Turkish Republic) is littered with glorious remnants of its long and illustrious history, and visits here will impress even the most weary visitor to the monument. As well as the big four (Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, and Grand Bazaar), it leaves enough time to explore the other places. Although many tourist attractions are located in, or near, the old city district of Sultanahmet, there is a dazzling range of other things to do throughout the further extension of the city.
