A physical and cultural bridge between Europe and Asia, the transcontinental city of Istanbul serves as a living reminder of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Kariye Museum (The Chora Church). Step off the beaten path and head to Istanbul Arkeoloji Muzesi and Ulu Cami. Venture out of the city with trips to Bursa (Koza Hani & Green Tomb) and Aya Yorgi Church (in Buyukada). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Basilica Cistern, see the interesting displays at Rahmi M. Koc Museum, wander the streets of Beyoglu, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fatih Mosque and Complex.
