Historic Buildings that are a Rich Past's Heritage
İstanbul attracts thousands of tourists worldwide with its historical places and architecture reflecting its multicultural identity and rich history. Due to its strategic location, the city, which has been home to numerous civilisations throughout history, also holds many historical buildings showing traces of different eras and cultures. The "Historical Peninsula" houses many of the city's iconic buildings. Surrounded on one side by the ancient city walls and on the other by the Bosphorus, the Sea of Marmara, and the Golden Horn, the peninsula attracts tourists and travellers with the Hippodrome, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Blue Mosque, İstanbul Archeology Museum and Topkapı Palace.
İstanbul's towers are also must-see attractions. The Galata Tower, the famous structure on İstanbul's skyline, offers incredible panoramic views of the city from its observation floor. On the other hand, the Maiden's Tower, the iconic structure of the İstanbul Bosphorus, enables its visitors to watch the beautiful İstanbul from an entirely different point of view.
A Unique Blend of Art and Culture
İstanbul, known for its rich historical heritage, is a real treasure for art lovers, with its museums that combine the cultural dynamism of the age with traditions, modern art galleries, cultural centres, streets hosting artists and designers, concert venues, and an ever-increasing number of cultural and artistic events.
