Turkey, Istanbul Guide (B): Things to Do in Istanbul, Turkey

If you are looking for Things to do in Istanbul, I’m going to make a list of some of the best attractions in the city.

Divided between two continents, Europe and Asia, Istanbul is the biggest city in Turkey and one of the largest and most populated in the world. Blending these two different cultures plus the strong religious influence and the historical importance, Istanbul (formerly Constantinople) is a fascinating city and has really interesting tourist attractions.

I visited the city in August of 2014 and got very impressed with how huge and populated the city is and also with its main tourists points. However most of the Things to do in Istanbul are on the European side, tourist should also visit the Asian side to get a better idea of how diverse and cosmopolitan the city is.

The most breathtaking tourist attraction this museum, which was a cathedral for almost 1000 years and a mosque for 478 years, was constructed in 537, has a Byzantine architecture and beautiful mosaics. This is the main reason I visited Istanbul and I was completely in awe when I entered into this museum. The price is a kind of expensive but the visit is totally worth.
